Andrew Sullivan Just Launched A Monthly Journalism Magazine

Deep Dish will be accessible only to subscribers of Sullivan's freemium blog.

Andrew Sullivan, the popular media pundit and blog personality, is continuing on the obligatory path for all 21st century journalists: building and expanding the brand empire. Sullivan's new monthly, subscription-only longform journalism magazine launched on November 18. The first issue of the digital publication, Deep Dish, will include two pieces: A mea culpa called "I Was Wrong" that revisits Sullivan's blogging about Iraq from 2001 to 2008, and a conversation with Iraq War veteran Mikey Piro. Deep Dish will be accessible only to subscribers of Sullivan's freemium blog.

Subscriptions to Sullivan's The Dish, which includes the longform magazine, are $1.99 per month. Sullivan's decision to leave traditional blogging for outlets like The Atlantic and The Daily Beast in favor of entrepreneurial journalism have largely been a success. In August, he publicly claimed his blog is more profitable than The Daily Beast and he presold 500,000 subscriptions before his site even went live.
