Foreign Policy is a Washington D.C.-based magazine with a 45-year track record in providing coverage of global affairs, current events, domestic and international policy, and new ideas from the world’s leading thinkers. The bi-monthly FP Magazine and website (www.foreignpolicy.com) are often used as platforms to promulgate new policies, such as when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton penned an article that coined the US’s foreign policy strategy to “pivot East.”
The FP’s website reaches 4.41 million readers monthly, with the average unique visitor spending 4.8 minutes on the site, more than double the time readers spent on ForeignAffairs.com and Economist.com.
Meanwhile, a solid portion of the magazine’s readership are professionals in the US that hold responsibilities in operations or decision-making positions of their companies. This professional audience gives the FP access to a high-income social class: About 48% of the magazine’s readership were surveyed to have a household income of over $100,000.
In 2000, a format change was implemented from a slim quarterly academic journal to today’s bi-monthly magazine, which was followed by a launch of international editions in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America. The format change has proven successful in raising engagement, with 87% of readers now spending an hour or more reading each issue.
The FP is one of the most distinguished medias in the US, having won 3 National Magazine Award, 5 Folio Magazine Eddie Awards for Editorial Excellence, an Overseas Press Club Award, and a Military Reporters and Editors Award for Best Content.
