Radar Online is an American entertainment and gossip website that was first published as a print and online publication in September 2003 before becoming exclusively online.[3][4][5] As of 2008, the magazine has been owned by the publisher American Media Inc.[6] American Media’s Chief Content Officer, Dylan Howard, oversees the publication.[7][8]

History[edit]

The magazine Radar, which published articles on entertainment, fashion, politics, and human interest, was founded and edited by Maer Roshan in September 2003.[9][10][11] After a series of three test issues, he relaunched it in 2005 and again in 2006 with help from investors and family members. [12][13][14][14] Radar was awarded a General Excellence nomination by the American Society of Magazine Editors in 2007. Its website, Radar Online, earned an audience of one million a month soon after it launched.[citation needed]

A flop from the start, the print magazine was suddenly shuttered in 2008, after its primary backer, billionaire Ron Burkle, who owned a substantial interest in Starand National Enquirer publisher American Media, withdrew. Radar Online was relaunched in March 2009 with a rebranding, focusing on celebrity items about gossip, fashion and pop culture. All of the articles previously published by Radar Online were erased from the site.
