Honchos of The New Frontier, the self-appointed successor to George magazine long promised by Kennedy friend Helen O'Donnell, tell Folio they will finally launch in February after some false starts.
To reflect its mix of politics and entertainment, TNF will hold launch events in Hollywood and Washington. [Deputy editor Gary] LaForest says the magazine will focus on the actions taken in government, media and politics and where those actions are taking us in the future. The first issue will feature interviews with Chuck Hegel and other philosopher senators. For issue two, LaForest promises an interview with a major Hollywood figure who is in trouble over a movie.
Back when the launch was to be in December, O'Donnell had told Jeff Bercovici at Media Life: "It took John three and a half years to finally get George ready to launch, so I feel fairly comfortable about our timeframe."
