Época magazine was created in May 1998 to compete with other weekly publications from rival communication groups such as Veja (Abril) and IstoÉ (Editora Três). After a nine years preparation period, the weekly publication was launched with themes and analyzes ranging from politics and economy to behavior, science and artes.

Época’s headquarters are located in São Paulo with branch offices in Rio de Janeiro and Brasília. The first edition sold 350 thousand copies (a little less than the current circulation, 20 years later) and had an editorial by Roberto Marinho, where he stated that “in these pages you will find a mass of precise, balanced, democratic and pluralist information”.

The Época magazine currently has a circulation of around 360 thousand copies, of which a little less than 190 thousand are sold per subscription; the rest is sold in bookshops and newsstands. Between December 2016 and February 2017, Época went up from 50 thousand to 90 thousand online subscribers, which has also been a trend for other print vehicles.
