HoneyMag.com announces partnership with women's entertainment network

(October 2, 2009) HoneyMag.com , synonymous with engaging beauty, fashion and lifestyle content, is pleased to announce a joint partnership with WEEN (Women In Empowerment Network) to create an online destination for young women seeking useful and empowering career information. As a go-to resource aimed to inspire and inform young women, HoneyMag.com created the Honey Internship Placement (HIP) Program to help the most talented, ambitious, and resourceful of their readers break into their "dream" industries of Music, Entertainment, Fashion and PR. As of this date, HoneyMag.com has placed 17 interns with major corporations such as Martha Stewart Omnimedia, MTV Networks, Universal Records and many more, whom all agreed to host interns in various departments during the summer of 2009.

"We are very excited to partner with WEEN to offer a careers portal for young women as they enter into the workforce," says Philmore Anderson, CEO of Sahara Media Inc, parent company to HoneyMag.com. "As a company with long-standing brand awareness and a loyal consumer base, we want HoneyMag.com to continuously be a destination of empowerment, growth, encouragement and self awareness for our young readers."

"Honey Magazine helped pave the way for women's empowerment and we are excited to join forces to provide career opportunities for young adults during troubled economic times," states Valeisha Butterfield, WEEN Co-Founder and Chair. "Now more than ever, young women are taking leadership in their own lives by seeking financial independence. WEEN's career center, with Honey, will serve as the go-to online destination for career development."

HoneyMag.com originated from the highly successful Honey Magazine, which first hit newsstands in 1999. To date, Honey is the largest selling magazine in the 18-34 African American female demographic, having reached a readership of 1.5 million through Honey's loyal consumer base, brand awareness, foundation of advertisers, and proven editorial formula. The first magazine to feature the largest array of multi-cultural cover models including Beyoncé, Tyra Banks, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lil` Kim, Boris Kodjoe, LL Cool J, Lisa Left Eye Lopez and Aaliyah, HoneyMag.com is designed to fill a necessary void in the way beauty, fashion and lifestyle content is delivered online to its readers.

Serving as a how-to-guide on four key areas in young women's lives: communication, community, career and connection, HoneyMag.com is organized by key topics such as "the buzz", "the look", "your life", and "love&sex." With a finger planted firmly on the pulse of today's young woman on a mission, HoneyMag.com celebrates and empowers their audience to draw inspiration from the break-through moments of Honey girls everywhere. www.HoneyMag.com.
