Celebrating The Magazine Media Centennial Club… Mr. Magazine™ Identifies 52 Magazine Media Brands That Are Now 100 Years or Older.

How many media brands you know of are celebrating at least one hundred years of existence? Four magazines join the magazine media centennial club this year: Reader’s Digest (started Feb. 1922), The Ring and The Magazine Antiques that were also started in January of 1922, and Harvard Business Review that celebrates its centennial in October of this year.

I have compiled a list of 52 magazine media brands that are at least 100 years old. Some are even 200 years plus. To be included in my list the magazine must still be published in print and is still available for the general public to subscribe to it or to buy it on the newsstands. All the magazines listed are United States of American based and published magazines.

Here is what I call the Magazine Media Centennial Club in alphabetical order:
