Hearst Digital, part of the National Magazine Company, wants an agency to promote its stable of titles. This includes the online versions of women's titles Cosmopolitan and Good Housekeeping, as well as web-only brands handbag.com and netdoctor.co.uk.
The head of one consumer agency approached to work on the business said the brief would focus solely on Hearst's digital division.
It is not known whether a shortlist has been chosen and Hearst Digital marketing
director Claire Higgins could not be reached as PRWeek went to press.
