Fame Productions (FMPR) Subsidiary Augustus Publishing Enters Into License Agreement With Vibe Magazine

MELVILLE, NY--(Marketwire - October 14, 2010) -  FAME Productions, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: FMPR) announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, Augustus Publishing, entered into a license agreement with the publishers of VIBE magazine to market and distribute books and downloads under the VIBE Lifestyle Books imprint.
 
Under the terms of the agreement, Augustus Publishing will publish and distribute VIBE Lifestyle Books. VIBE Lifestyle Books will focus on non-fiction titles with a special interest in music, culture, race, and politics.

VIBE magazine was the first publication to document the global phenomenon of Hip Hop. From music, movies and fashion to race relations, politics, and sexuality, VIBE has grown to become one of popular culture's most powerful brands.

"VIBE magazine set the standard for serious journalism about urban culture," says Rob Kenner, Editorial Director of VIBE Lifestyle Books. "Then VIBE Books helped solidify the respect for hip hop as an art form for the ages. But there is so much ground still left uncovered, so many great stories still untold."

Jason Claiborne, CEO of FAME says of the venture, "It's a natural partnership and a great opportunity for Augustus to provide content suited for our diverse and growing urban demographic."

As part of its business strategy, the agreement with VIBE Lifestyle Books expands the Augustus street literature base by adding new titles and authors while leveraging the VIBE legacy.
