Cape Town – It’s a sad day in South African publishing as the magazine that inspired thousands of people for 12 years is taking its final bow.

According to Bizcommunity.com the publication will print its last local copies in September 2014. We reached out to the mag for an official comment and this is what Sharon Piehl, director of Brand Marketing at Fleishman Hillard (O’s PR people), had to say via an official statement sent to Channel24:

"This was a difficult decision for us and our partners. For 12 years, the magazine has been providing readers with encouragement and inspiration to live their best lives, and we thank them for their passion and loyalty," said Julia Raphaely, CEO of Associated Media Publishing, which publishes the magazine in partnership with Hearst Magazines International.

"Subscribers will have the opportunity to receive any of the company’s other women’s titles for the duration of their subscriptions, and all O readers can continue to enjoy great life-affirming content on Oprah.com as well as on the Oprah Winfrey Network programming block on the DStv channel, TLC Entertainment."


So, that’s literally all she wrote folks, you’ll have to check out Oprah on TLC for your inspirational  quotes and more. We know we will be.
