Media: The Week in Media

Attic Brand Media, the magazine publisher behind Kick and National Geographic Kids, is said to have gone into administration after 22 years.

It is understood that 17 members of staff in the UK have entered into consultation. According to a source, four titles - Merlin, Kick, Kick Extra and Kraze Club - are at risk of closure, while National Geographic Kids will continue to be published by a new company. No-one from Attic Media was available to comment.

The Daily Telegraph is mirroring The Guardian and increasing its weekday cover price from £1 to £1.20. The title lifted its weekday cover price to £1.20 from Monday. The price of the Saturday edition was also raised from £1.90 to £2 this weekend. The price of The Sunday Telegraph will stay at £2.

Trinity Mirror has cited the closure of the News of the World (NotW) as leading to a 'significant improvement' in revenue performance of its Sunday tabloids, according to last week's trading statement. Circulations of the Sunday Mirror and The People have benefited from the closure of the NotW in June, as previously reported in Media Week.

InStyle, IPC's monthly fashion and beauty magazine, has signed up seven fashion designers to create seven limited edition covers for subscribers and short films exploring the notion of style.
