Life Magazine Revived

  • November 9, 2001
Life magazine, which ceased publication as a monthly in May 2000, is back on the stands with two issues this week. The magazine was resuscitated by AOL Time Warner with two simultaneous special issues: "In the Land of the Free," focusing on the Sept. 11 attacks and the aftermath, and "America's Parade," on the history of Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. When the magazine folded last year, plans were afoot to keep the name alive via periodic issues commemorating milestone events. Life now plans to publish eight issues each year, about every six weeks. Upcoming topics include the history of rock 'n' roll and the Mafia. The magazine was founded by Henry Luce and ran as a weekly from 1936 until 1972. It was revived as a monthly in 1978. -- Variety
