NEW YORK -- November 13, 2012

Meredith Corporation (NYSE: MDP) and MetLife Auto & Home jointly announced
today that qualified subscribers to two of Meredith’s most well-known
publications will be able to insure their homes and automobiles with group
discounts. Subscribers of both Ladies’ Home Journal and Family Circle will be
offered the opportunity to apply for insurance coverage provided by MetLife
Auto & Home and other leading insurance carriers.

“The millions of women we reach through our Family Circle and Ladies’ Home
Journal brands are passionate about all things pertaining to their home and
family,” said Nancy Weber, executive vice president and chief marketing
officer at Meredith Women’s Network. “We’re excited to be able to offer them
an opportunity to participate in this program.”

“This relationship with a leading publisher like Meredith provides MetLife
Auto & Home a unique opportunity to serve subscribers of two iconic
publications that have histories of deep engagement with their audiences,”
said David Brennan, vice president, US Sponsored Direct Business at MetLife.

As part of the program, qualified subscribers also will be able to secure
insurance protection for other items, including rental properties, condos,
boats, motor homes and RVs. Additionally, those subscribers may have access to
other value-added features such as convenient payment options, identity
protection services, personalized service, and superior driver discounts.
Insurance availability, coverages, and discounts vary from state to state.

“We’re pleased to offer subscribers some of the most comprehensive auto and
home insurance coverage available, at competitive group rates,” noted Brennan.
“Not all auto and home insurance policies are the same, and we encourage
subscribers to review their current policies to ensure that they have the
right amount of coverage and the features to fit their needs.”

The outreach to subscribers will be undertaken by several Meredith business
units including the Meredith Women’s Network, Meredith Xcelerated Marketing,
and Consumer Marketing.
