BBC Worldwide is halting publication of its celebrity teen magazine Star, with the final issue on sale until the first week in November. The BBC said it had decided to close the title a year after its launch because, despite recording a first ABC of more than 130,000, the title was not showing the necessary sales potential. Publishing director Lindsaye Fox said: "While Star has achieved a great deal over the last year in a terribly difficult market, we've been taking a hard look at its prospects and have to conclude that there isn't sufficient potential for growth at this time. "It is our view that we'd be better to concentrate on pursuing plans we have for the teen market." {{CTN }}
