Time Warner Said to Talk to Meredith About Magazine Deal

Time Warner Inc. is considering a deal that would send most of its magazines to Meredith Corp., according to a person familiar with the talks, putting titles such as People and Entertainment Weekly in the hands of the Iowa-based publisher of Better Homes and Gardens.

Under the terms being discussed, Meredith would get all but a handful of Time Warner’s 21 U.S. magazine titles, according to the person, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private. Time, Sports Illustrated and Fortune would remain with Time Warner, the person said. Meredith is more interested in titles such as Real Simple and InStyle that fit with its own magazines aimed at women, according to the person.
