Political magazine Tribune returns to shelves

Britain’s oldest democratic socialist magazine Tribune has relaunched after 10 months off the shelves.

Britain’s oldest democratic socialist magazine Tribune has relaunched after 10 months off the shelves.

The publication began in 1937 and changed hands multiple times, before coming into possession of London Publishing Trading in 2016. Due to insufficient revenue, the company stopped publishing the title in January.

Bhaskar Sunkara, publisher and founder of American left-centred title Jacobin, bought Tribune from London Publishing Trading. The political publication has now relaunched with a new team and is available to independent stores.

Speaking to Better Retailing, Bill Palmer from Magazine Heaven expects the relaunched magazine to perform well in his store.

"We have ordered the first issue of Tribune, and are displaying it in good company on the shelf alongside The Spectator and The Statesman," he said. "The relaunch is good news – this is a kind of magazine people are always interested in."

The new edition of Tribune will be published every two months at £6.95, and according to the company, it already had around 1,500 subscribers ahead of its relaunch.
