Ali Kirker, Editor of Platinum, said: “Women over 50 feel younger than ever today, but they also feel misrepresented by media. They want to see things that inform and reflect their life – a life that’s filled with everything they’re passionate about, exciting social events, amazing travel and great love lives. Platinum magazine is for women who are up-to-date in both style and attitude, confident, engaged and interested in exploring the world around them.

“In the pages of Platinum women will find everything from in-depth reads to the latest from the world of wellbeing. With the confidence to tackle contemporary, challenging issues too, especially relevant to this demographic, Platinum will be both an upbeat treat and an essential every month.”

Every month, Platinum will share the health obsession of this demographic, tackle the issues they need to know with passion and authority, challenge them to be bold and adventurous and inspire them to live life on full power.

Whether looking for new travel destinations, the latest style inspiration or financial advice, Platinum will fill the gap in the market to become the monthly read for women over 55 who believe in making the most of every day.

Women in the over 55 demographic are in the prime of their lives and having the time of their lives – a force to be reckoned with and the glue that holds generations together. They are both committed magazine readers and powerful consumers and no-one understands them better than the team at DC Thomson Media. At Platinum we’re proud to be their trusted source for content and we’re honoured to be their champions.”
