Associated Media Publishing which is the publisher of Cosmopolitan, House & Leisure, Good Housekeeping and Women on Wheels, is closing its doors for good on Friday the 1st of May because of the impact of Covid-19.

The company was launched in 1982 by Jane Raphaely, a powerful woman in the media industry and in 2010 her daughter Julia took over the company. “This is the most difficult decision I have ever had to make,” the publisher’s CEO, Julia Raphaely, said in a statement released on Thursday. “We never thought this day would come, but we are left with no choice.”

Julia added she was grateful to people who helped create the publications they put out in the last decade.
