Exhibit 99.1


AMERICAN MEDIA, INC. REPORTS RESULTS
FOR THIRD QUARTER OF FISCAL YEAR 2013

-- Revenue Decreases Slightly to $85 Million, Partially Offset by Decline in Expenses Resulting in Adjusted EBITDA for the Quarter of $26 million, up 22% from prior year --


New York, NY, February 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - American Media, Inc. (AMI), the leading content centric media company specializing in celebrity journalism and health and fitness in the U.S., today reported its financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012.

Revenue

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $85 million, compared to $88 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, representing a 3% decrease. For the nine months ended December 31, 2012, revenue was $262 million, as compared to $286 million, an 8% decrease, compared to prior year. The decrease in revenue during both the quarter and nine-month periods primarily reflected the negative impact of Superstorm Sandy, the shift of print advertising dollars to broadcast for the 2012 Summer Olympics and the overall general market weakness for advertising spending due to the continued downturn in the U.S. economy.

Operating Income

Operating income before impairment charges for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $12 million, or $0.8 million higher than the prior year's third quarter. For the nine months ended December 31, 2012, operating income before impairment charges was $38 million, or $7 million lower than the prior-year period. The decrease in operating income during the nine-month period was primarily due to the above-mentioned decrease in revenue, as well as duplicative expenses incurred in connection with Superstorm Sandy, partially offset by cost reductions generated by the Company as it implemented its management action plans.

Non-cash Impairment of Goodwill and Intangibles

As a result of the Company's interim impairment testing, the operating results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 reflect non-cash goodwill impairment charges of $47 million and non-cash tradename impairment charges of $7 million. These non-cash impairment charges impacted the Celebrity Brands segment ($42 million), the Women's Active Lifestyle segment ($4 million) and the Men's Active Lifestyle segment ($8 million).

Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, Amortization and Other Non-Recurring Items (Adjusted EBITDA)

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $26 million, compared to $21 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, representing a 22% increase. Adjusted EBITDA for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 was basically flat to the prior-year period at $106 million.
