Bonnie, David, they’re our man:: The Palm Beach Post (noted for its magazine industry coverage), reports that the sleazy grocery-store tabloid, “The Star,” will be relaunched on January 9 as “The Star,” a glossy grocery store magazine about sleazy celebreties.
As required when covering stories like this, the Post’s staff writer sought the wisdom of this rexblog’s friend and favorite authority on all-things-magazinal.
“It’s a big gamble. They have to erase the tabloid history linked to the title,” said Samir Husni, a nationally known magazine expert based at the University of Mississippi. “If anyone can do it, it would be Bonnie and David. If they can’t do it, then you can’t transform a tabloid into a magazine.”
