PROPERTY BROTHERS GO GLOSSY: The Property Brothers, aka twin bros Drew and Jonathan Scott, are launching a quarterly print publication set to launch in January 2020. The HGTV stars have not yet shared a title of the mag, but it will be published by Meredith, and sell for $9.99 an issue. In a statement, Drew said: “For us, it’s always been about taking the small, simple steps that earn big results at home, work, rest and play. With a platform like this, we get to develop a consistent and thoughtful way of sharing great ideas and actionable insights with our audiences.” The glossy will focus on home, décor, renovations, entertainment, family, food and more. The Scott brothers seem to following the successful template laid out by fellow HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines, who launched the quarterly Magnolia Journal with Meredith, and now enjoys a circulation of about 1.2 million.
