Episode 163: COVID-19 and Your Magazine

In this special episode of AudioMag, Magazines Canada responds to your COVID-19 concerns. We understand that this pandemic has brought unprecedented disruptions to the economy and daily life, and we hope to answer some of your pressing needs with these four interviews with Magazines Canada staff. Our producer Michael Brown conducted the interviews and they were recorded remotely, so please forgive any disruptions in audio quality.

Hear from Melanie Rutledge, Executive Director of Magazines Canada, as she discusses the funding and support packages currently offered by the federal government for Canadian magazine publishers. Brianne DiAngelo, Director of Communications and Public Engagement, shares communications strategies for your magazine. If you’re looking for answers on distribution questions, listen as Chris Chambers, Manager of Retail Accounts, talks about adjusting your distribution plan to best bounce back when stores re-open. And Evan Dickson, Director of Business Development, offers advice on working from home and how that impacts your business continuity planning.
