ATLANTA, Ga., January 31, 2014 – Inside Cheerleading and Cheer Biz News magazines are kicking-off a year-long celebration to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of both magazines! Throughout 2014, the special milestone will be celebrated with promotions, a look-back series in the magazines and events to mark the momentous occasion!
I remember like yesterday traveling to Lexington, Kentucky for the photo shoot for our premiere issue of Inside Cheerleading (pictured right) which featured cheerleaders from Morehead State, Kentucky and Louisville,” says Chris Korotky, President of Inside Publications. “Our goal was – and continues to be – producing the most informative, entertaining, and relevant magazines for the passionate cheer community. The response from day one was overwhelming and I’m proud of the incredible work our amazing team has done through the years, thankful for our advertising partners who we count as friends, and humbled by the way cheerleaders, coaches and industry members have embraced our publications.”
The celebration will include a jam-packed slate of activities, promotions, events and special features in the magazine. We will be criss-crossing the country in a special “Anniversary Edition” of our annual Road Trip, meeting readers at competitions and camps coast to coast. At these events, we will be selling a special limited edition, collector’s 10th Anniversary trading pin as well. Special promotions through our social media outlets, which now have more than 300,000 Followers, will also mark the occasion.
The April issue of Inside Cheerleading will also be a special commemorative edition of the magazine, celebrating the Anniversary with a look back at some of the most popular features and photos from the last decade.
Cheer Biz News, also launched in 2004, was acquired by Inside Publications in 2012 and will have its own slate of Anniversary features throughout the year. We’re also inviting industry members from all segments to share some of their highlights from the cheer world over the past 10 years to include in the lineup!
In addition to Inside Cheerleading and Cheer Biz News, Inside Publications’ family of titles also includes Inside Gymnastics, Inside Volleyball, The Cheerleading Coach’s Handbook (Annual), The Cheer and Dance Worlds Commemorative Issue (Annual) and The Gymnastics Coach’s Resource Guide (Annual). The company is also launching the new magazine Inside Dance this quarter.
“We’re definitely going to celebrate this milestone all year long,” exclaimed Shane Womack, Vice President of Inside Publications. “It’s truly amazing to see how much cheerleading, as well as the magazines, have grown and developed over the last 10 years. I can’t wait to see what the next 10 years will hold for both the magazines and the sport!”
