You may know that Modern Cat is the sister magazine to Modern Dog, which just celebrated ten years in print. Years ago when Modern Dog first hit the newsstands we were honoured by being chosen as one of 2003’s most notable launches by Dr. Samir Husni. Known as Mr. Magazine, Dr. Husni is the Founder and Director of the Magazine Innovation Center at the University of Mississippi’s Meek School of Journalism and New Media. Considered a guru in the magazine publishing industry, Dr. Husni’s opinions, advice and forecasts are sought and referenced, so needless to say, we were thrilled with the recognition. Just this week I received some very exciting news … Modern Dog’s sister publication, Modern Cat magazine, has also been so honoured. Modern Cat has been selected by Dr. Husni and Min as one of the Hottest Magazine Launches of the Year. It was chosen from a field of over 750 other new consumer titles. Modern Cat magazine will be recognized at an awards ceremony December 10th at the Marriot Marquis in New York City. Thank you Dr. Husni and Min!
