SMASH HITS 

UK MUSIC MAGAZINE

Smash Hits was a pop music magazine, aimed at teenagers and young adults and originally published in the United Kingdom by EMAP. It ran from 1978 to 2006[1] and was issued fortnightly for most of that time. The name survived as a brand for a spin-off digital television channel -now named Box Hits – and website. A digital radio station was also available but shut on 5 August 2013.

The magazine was at its peak in the 1980s, launching the career of many journalists including Heat‘s editor Mark Frith. Other well-known writers have included Dave RimmerIan BirchMark Ellen (who went on to launch QMojo and Word), Steve BeebeePeter MartinChris HeathSylvia PattersonAlex KadisSian PattendenTom Hibbert, and Miranda SawyerNeil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys also worked as a writer and assistant editor, and once claimed that had he not become a pop star, he would likely have pursued his ambition to become editor.

In the 1990s, the magazine’s circulation slumped and it was overtaken by the BBC‘s spin off magazine Top of the PopsEmap‘s other biweekly teen magazine of the period Big! (which featured more celebrities and stars of TV series including Australians based Home and Away and United States imported Beverly Hills, 90210) was closed and this celeb focus was shifted over to Smash Hits, which became less focused on teen pop and more of an entertainment magazine. The magazine also shifted size a number of times in subsequent relaunches including one format that was as big as an album with songwords to be clipped out on the card cover. Television presenter and journalist Kate Thornton was editor for a short time.

The magazine was also available in Continental Europe, especially in Germany where the issues could be bought at train stations or airports, whilst the title was licensed for a French version in the 1990s. There were other licensed versions in the magazine’s history. In 1984, an Australian version was created and proved just as successful for that new market as the original had back in Britain, whilst in the United States, a version was published during the 1980s under the title Star Hits, drawing articles from the British version.

It was published by Emap, who also use the name for one of their digital television services, and for a digital radio station. The brand also covered the annual Smash Hits Poll Winners Party, an awards ceremony voted for by readers of the magazine.

In February 2006, it was announced that the magazine would cease publication after the February 13 edition due to declining sales.[2] The digital music video channel, digital radio, and website services still continue.

In July 2009, a one-off commemorative issue of the magazine was published as a tribute to singer Michael Jackson.[3] Further one-off specials were released in November 2009 (Take That) and December 2010 (Lady Gaga).[4]
