Cover of National Examiner (23 June 2014)
|Chief Content Officer||Dylan Howard|
|Company||American Media, Inc.|
|Based in||New York City|
The Examiner has the fewest pages and is the least expensive tabloid in American Media's portfolio; it aims for an older audience. While its sister publications focus on more current content (such as the National Enquirer's focus on celebrity news and Globe's political and culture stories), the Examiner focuses on longer-standing stories featuring older (sometimes deceased) celebrities. Also prominently featured among the Examiner's stories are articles on daytime television.
National Examiner was owned by the Globe Communications until 1999 when American Media acquired it and its sister publication Globe. The magazine was based in Boca Raton, Florida until September 10, 2015 when it moved to New York City.
Like other tabloids, its contents have often come under question, and it has been derided for its sensationalistic writing.
On April 18, 2019, AMI agreed to sell the Examiner, along with the National Enquirer and Globe, to Hudson Group.
