Knight Ridder/Tribune Information Services (KRT) will combine its existing youth offerings into Kids & Teens Elements, a package of stories and visuals for readers ages 5 to 18. In addition, KRT Kids & Teens has partnered with Miss O and Friends (www.missOandFriends.com) to offer advice for the ‘tween set from both a professional counselor and the 16-year-old co-founder of Miss O.
The new Kids & Teens Elements package features centerpiece stories and art and regular columns for elementary, middle, and high school readers, with topics ranging from making the most of your family’s move to going away to rock ‘n’ roll camp. The newly combined package, which begins Sept. 1, replaces Kids Elements and KRTeens.
Content from Miss O & Friends aims to help build self-esteem, and encourages girls ages 8 to 12 to “just be” girls.
The weekly Kids & Teens Elements package is being sold by On The Mark Media (www.onthemarkmedia.com), the specialty publications division of Tribune Media Services (TMS). It will also be available on KRT Direct (www.krtdirect.com/kidsele/live.htm) and on NewsCom (www.newscom.com).
