DC Thomson purchases No.1 Magazine

Dundee-based media company DC Thomson has purchased the Scottish women’s lifestyle title, No.1 Magazine.

Published to date by PSP Publishing Limited, No.1 Magazine has been in circulation for almost 10 years. As Scotland’s glamorous glossy magazine, the title captures everything Scottish from celebrity news, fashion and beauty to interior trends, fitness, food and events, says DC Thomson.

No.1 Magazine will join DC Thomson’s stable of publications with immediate effect. Existing No.1 Magazine staff members will transfer to the company’s Glasgow office in Skypark. Issue 158 (dated July 31st) will be the first published by DC Thomson.

Ellis Watson, CEO of DC Thomson Publishing, said, “No.1 Magazine will complement our existing brands, in particular our mature and women’s titles, and strengthen our magazines portfolio. It fits nicely as a Scottish sister alongside our other titles like My Weekly and Scottish Wedding Directory.

“It’s is an interesting opportunity and we’re pleased to fully integrate the title which we hope will deliver benefits for the title and the company.”

Paul Grant, Managing Director of PSP Publishing Limited, said, “From its launch in 2006 we are very proud to have successfully developed the magazine to this stage. However, this purchase represents a very exciting time for No.1 and I am confident that the title will continue to grow and prosper now that it is part of the DC Thomson portfolio.”
