First Issue of Time Published 92 Years Ago

Ninety-two years ago today, March 3, the first issue of Time Magazine was published. Time is one of the most relevant and influential magazines still in circulation today, so I thought this article extremely interesting. The article said it only cost 15 cents to buy; now, it costs around $16 for a subscription.

An author at the time said that this idea for Time magazine would never work, and he obviously could not have been more wrong. Reading this short article reminded me how relevant Time magazine is and how long it’s been around, because honestly I had no idea it had been that long. Even though not nearly as many people grab the paper copies than subscribe to it online, some Time covers are priceless. I know my family has quite a few actual solid copies of some issues, as they are apart of history. One that stands out in particular is the JFK one.

So this begs the question: How long will Time Magazine still sell hard copies of their issues?
