JFK JR.'S DEATH WON'T KILL 'GEORGE,' CO-OWNER SAYS

George magazine will continue without John F. Kennedy Jr.

There were concerns about the magazine's future after Kennedy's death in a July 16 plane crash. But Hachette Filipacchi Magazines, which co-owned the magazine with Kennedy, said the magazine would cut back to 10 issues a year from 12 while guaranteeing advertisers a larger circulation.

Starting with the February 2000 issue, advertisers are being promised circulation of 450,000 per issue of the 4-year-old magazine that mixes political commentary and celebrity profiles, up 12.5 percent from the current 400,000.

"We are committed to the continued success of George, and we are aggressively pursuing all roads to that end," Jack Kliger, Hachette Filipacchi's president, said Friday.
