Reports of Continued Distribution to U.S. Military Were Premature

TNG is not, after all, picking up this portion of the business.

I don't have a complete new post today, just an update—but it's an important one.

My last post reported that PMG, distributor to the U.S. military and other locations overseas, had closed its doors for its military, South American, and Hawaii business. The important U.S. military portion of the business was said to be taken over by TNG (formerly The News Group).

Today we hear that the agreement with TNG has not, in fact, materialized. As of this morning it appears that there is no finalized agreement to ship magazines to the U.S. military overseas, not with TNG, not with anyone.

Publishers are instructed to hold all product directed to U.S. military and to await further developments.
