Dr. Oz's magazine, The Good Life, will no longer be a monthly magazine. I got a notice in the mail that they switched my subscription to Good Housekeeping instead. I was so disappointed. His was my favorite magazine and one of the few that I actually read cover-to-cover each month.
I wasn't happy with the substitution of Good Housekeeping, so I searched the internet and found the phone number for Hearst Communications. I called them, and they offered a refund. Or, I could switch my subscription to another one of their magazines. I already get Oprah's magazine, so I decided to extend that subscription for the remaining time left on my Dr. Oz magazine subscription. I thought I'd blog and share the information, in case this would help anyone else.
If you want to contact Hearst Communications, their phone number is:
A webpage with a list of their magazines can be found at:
They may have others too, I don't know, but at least this list has some options that may appeal to you if you want to switch your subscription.
Also, the notice stated that Dr. Oz will be publishing a quarterly magazine. The person on the phone at Hearst said this will only be available in stores (I asked if I could get the quarterly magazine delivered instead of the monthly magazine, but she said that wasn't an option).
I'll certainly miss the health tips, nutritional information, and recipes in the monthly Dr. Oz magazine. I always felt like I learned something while reading it. I'm glad they would switch my subscription, at least, because I really didn't care for Good Housekeeping. I would say I like about half of Oprah's magazine. I don't really care about the fashion or style sections, but I do enjoy the spiritual and self-improvement articles and contributors.
