B2B publisher Metropolis has acquired magazines Viz, Cyclist and Fortean Times from Broadleaf Group for an undisclosed sum.
Adult satire magazine Viz has been running for 42 years and is known for its trademark style of parody and profanity. Cyclist is a world-leading road cycling media brand, while Fortean Times is a monthly magazine of news, reviews and research on strange and paranormal phenomena.
The three titles will bring a total of 72,000 magazine readers to the Metropolis group’s already sizeable collection of brands which include Nursing Times, Property Week and Architects’ Journal. Founded in 1994, the media owner has more than 400 staff across 40 brands.
