Hearst is likely to call its forthcoming Dr. Mehmet Oz magazine “The Good Life,” according to two people familiar with the matter. The title will likely also include the celebrity physician’s name, though it’s unclear precisely how that will be presented.
A Hearst spokeswoman declined to comment.
Hearst, the publisher of Esquire and Cosmopolitan, plans to announce the magazine’s name on Oct. 15 as part of an event it’s calling a magazine upfront, a reference to the TV industry’s annual presentations to ad buyers and negotiations for ad inventory. Two pilot issues of the Dr. Oz venture are due starting early next year, the company has said.
