COVID-19: our media appear as normal and we are at your disposal
We have been facing the considerable spread of the COVID-19 epidemic for several weeks. This has motivated the government to impose strict measures that we wholeheartedly understand and support.
Roularta Media Group intends to continue assuming its civil responsibility as a media company, informing the population in an independent, reliable and high-quality manner about COVID-19 and other important subjects.
Media consumption gets an enormous boost
In these turbulent times, people need and consume qualitative and credible media more than ever before.
Roularta Media does not foresee any changes to the current circulation of its magazines: subscriptions will be distributed as usual (bpost stays active) and digital subscriptions remain stable. Bookshop sales are also maintained.
