NME Magazine To Be Distributed For Free From September | Music News
Weekly music publication NME is to be distributed for free after September at train stations, shops and student unions around the country. The magazine that usually sells around 15,000 copies, will increase its publication to to 300,000 copies and the £2.50 cover price will be waived to increase its publicity and boost circulation. NME editor, Mike Williams said of the decision: “NME is already a major player and massive influencer in the music space, but with this transformation we’ll be bigger, stronger and more influential than ever before. Every media brand is on a journey into a digital future. That doesn’t mean leaving print behind, but it does mean that print has to change. The future is an exciting place, and NME just kicked the door down“.
