TV Guide Magazine has been kind to Clay Aiken. He has been featured on numerous covers and has had many mentions in the magazine. But, will TV Guide still be around to help support Clay and other prominent stars?? There are many in the business world that believes the magazine is on its last legs.
On April 3, 1955, TV Guide landed on newsstands, with a cover photograph of Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball. It soon became a fixture of American culture.
TV Guide has fallen far since its glory days. In 1980, it sold almost 20 million copies a week. Now, it has a circulation of 3.2 million.
TV Guide magazine plans to start a new web site very soon. It will not have TV listings. It will feature blogs, chats and behind-the-scenes material from cover shoots. This is a far cry from what started out as a weekly schedule of TV programs.
It can only be hoped that TV Guide finds its place in the magazine and web world. Clay Aiken and other stars need a place where they can be seen as the stars they are.
