The first issue as part of this new partnership will be on sale 5th December 2019. Intermedia says that its newsstand team will be supporting the publisher in the journey from printing to distribution, making sure their move to Intermedia is a smooth one.
John Bardsley, Intermedia Brand Marketing's managing director, said: “We are delighted to announce that we have successfully integrated Racing Pigeon to Intermedia’s growing portfolio of retail newsstand brands.”
“Racing Pigeon was first published over 100 years ago and provides news, classifieds, show and event information for the racing pigeon enthusiast.”
“Our client will benefit from the full retail newsstand services we provide to our growing portfolio of independent publishers and we look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
Throughout its 100-year run, the publication has catered to bird lovers and showcased what it says is an exciting and diverse hobby.
As editor Lee Fribbins writes on their website: “Pigeon racing is one of the most unique pastimes in the world. There are few if any sports or hobbies that can span across people in all walks, stages and ages of life throughout the world…the heritage of the oldest pigeon racing magazine being lost for good drove me to make sure that the magazine could continue and is now going from strength to strength.”
