About People

Since 1974, People has brought pop culture, celebrity gossip and real life drama into the homes of its millions of readers. With an emphasis on behind-the-scenes access and titillating details, it’s no surprise that People is the most widely read magazine on the planet.

2020 ADWEEK Hottest in Celebrity/Entertainment
"Even in an unprecedented year in which celebrity coverage inevitably changed, People has managed to stay relevant and popular. The brand produces a daily average of 135 digital stories—across verticals including human interest, crime and royals, and it’s seeing record-breaking success: Traffic to People.com reached 102 million total digital unique views, according to the brand. That reach has helped land exclusive interviews, including the first sit-down with the Democratic 2020 presidential ticket, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris."
