Time Inc.

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Time Inc. was an American worldwide mass media corporation founded on November 28, 1922, by Henry Luce and Briton Hadden and based in New York City. It owned and published over 100 magazine brands, including its namesake Time, Sports Illustrated, Travel + Leisure, Food & Wine, Fortune, People, InStyle, Life, Golf Magazine, Southern Living, Essence, Real Simple, and Entertainment Weekly. It also had subsidiaries which it co-operated with the UK magazine house Time Inc. UK (which was later sold and since has been rebranded to TI Media), whose major titles include What's on TV, NME, Country Life, and Wallpaper. Time Inc. also co-operated over 60 websites and digital-only titles including MyRecipes, Extra Crispy, TheSnug, HelloGiggles, and MIMI.

In 1990, Time Inc. merged with Warner Communications to form the media conglomerate Time Warner (later AT&T-owned WarnerMedia, which was spun off and merged with Discovery, Inc. to form Warner Bros. Discovery). This merger lasted until the company was spun off on June 9, 2014, going public under the ticker TIME. In November 2017, the competing publisher and media company Meredith Corporation announced that it would acquire Time Inc. for $2.8 billion. The acquisition was completed on January 31, 2018. Meredith was then acquired by IAC's Dotdash three years later, thus IAC gaining most of the former Time Inc. assets.
