The Watchtower is the world's most extensively circulated magazine, with a readership of more than 25 million, thanks to the work of Witnesses like the Tavolaccis. It is published eight times a year by the Jehovah's Witness Organization for the global congregation of Christians called "Witnesses".
The magazine focuses on news from and insights into the life of the organization, as well as reviews of products being marketed to Jehovah's Witnesses. It also includes stories about people who have lived good lives and been rewarded for their faith, as well as warnings about what will happen to those who do not accept Jesus as their savior.
The first issue was released in August 1941. It has since then become an important source of information for Jehovah's Witnesses around the world.
Issues are distributed free of charge at over 15,000 locations worldwide, where they are usually available on racks or in boxes near the entrance of buildings. Some locations provide only the magazine while others will also distribute The Watchtower Yearbook or The Watchtower Library series which contains articles from several years past issues of The Watchtower.

It is followed by US News & World Report and Sports Illustrated with average audiences of 14.3 and 12.4 million, respectively. In third place is Smithsonian Magazine with an average audience of 10.8 million.
These are the only three national magazines that reach more than 5 million readers each month.

Time Magazine was founded in 1923 by Henry Luce who wanted to provide "the news you need to know" every day at the hour you needed it. He also wanted to present information in a straightforward and easy-to-read style. Today, Time Inc. operates 23 publications that include Time, Time Life Books, People, Fortune, Sports Illustrated, and T: The New York Times Style Magazine.
US News & World Report was first published in 1958 by the Associated Press and Newsweek Magazine Co.
A magazine, also known as a periodical, is a printed or digitally published collection of regularly generated materials (essays, articles, tales, poetry) that are often illustrated (excluding newspapers). See Publishing: Magazine Publishing for further information.
The term "magazine" was originally used to describe a collection of articles on a particular topic that were printed in succession in a newspaper. However, today's magazines have no connection with newspapers. They are simply collections of articles and illustrations about various topics, usually fiction and non-fiction.
Magazines may be dedicated to a single subject, such as gardening or science, or they may cover a wide range of topics within certain guidelines. Some magazines focus exclusively on news while others include essays, columns, and other material in their publications.
In print media, the term is applied to publications that are distributed regularly, such as The New York Times or Rolling Stone, and can be either monthly or weekly. In online media, where all content is available on demand, the term "website" is generally used instead.
There are two types of magazines: consumer magazines and trade magazines. Consumer magazines are designed for an audience outside of the industry who are not necessarily interested in reading about their field of work; they are generally not updated as frequently as trade magazines and typically carry advertising along with editorial content.
