History and profile

Tiger Beat was founded in September 1965[1][2] by Charles "Chuck" Laufer, his brother Ira Laufer, and television producer and host Lloyd Thaxton.[3] The magazine features teen idol gossip and carries articles on movies, music and fashion.[4] Charles Laufer once described the magazine's content as "guys in their 20s singing 'La La' songs to 13-year-old girls."[5]

A distinctive element of Tiger Beat is its covers, which feature cut-and-paste collaged photos - primarily head shots - of current teen idols. For the first twelve issues, Thaxton's face appeared at the top corner of the cover (at first the magazine was entitled Lloyd Thaxton's Tiger Beat), and he also contributed a column.[6] Since 2016, the magazine has adopted having solo celebrities on their covers to target celeb-obsessed Gen Z-ers.[7]

During the 1960s The Laufer Company leveraged the teen market dominated by Tiger Beat with similar magazines, including FaVE and Monkee Spectacular.[8] In 1998 Tiger Beat was sold by publisher Sterling/MacFadden to Primedia, which in 2003 sold the magazine to Scott Laufer, Charles's son.[9] Until 2014, Laufer also produced the similar teen magazine Bop.[10][11]Since 2015 Tiger Beat has been published by Los Angeles-based Tiger Beat Media, Inc.[12][13]
