Family Circle's hallmark is still food, health/nutrition and parenting issues, but it won a 1991 national magazine award for an investigative piece on toxic chemicals and the environment. It's published 17 times a year. Editor Susan Ungaro has made the cover less cluttered and alternated covers between models who highlight health, nutrition and diet stories, and celebrities tied to features. Sponsorship of the Family Circle Tennis Cup gets several million dollars annually. The median reader age is 44; average household income, $38,000.
