Jill Herzig Named Editor in Chief of Dr. Oz Magazine
Posted on May 19, 2014
Jill Herzig has been named editor in chief of Dr. Oz The Good Life magazine, which debuted in February with a pilot issue. Herzig was previously editor in chief of Redbook. She replaces Alison Brower, who is leaving the company to rejoin The Hollywood Reporter.
The official launch of The Good Life will be the August/September issue. It will move to a 10 issues per year frequency next year. Hearst expects Dr. Oz to grow from a rate base of 450,000 in 2015.
Dr. Oz says in a statement, "I feel at home at Hearst and I love the magazine we're creating. It's a fresh take on living a happy, fulfilled life-something we all aspire to-and I'm thrilled to collaborate with Jill to provide readers with information and inspiration to live every day with confidence and joy."
Herzig says, "Dr. Oz connects with women in a uniquely personal, positive way. Sure, he brings us insights, ideas and important news, but beyond that, he motivates us all to make changes that feel great. He's convincing America that a healthy lifestyle is the bedrock of happiness. I'm looking forward to working with him to create a rich, imaginative editorial package for that transformative message."
