One of the most anticipated Belgian launches in recent years, Goedele – the personality magazine of Goedele Liekens and Sanoma Magazines Belgium – hits the newsstands today. Goedele is a dynamic, moving and inspiring glossy that reflects the views of Goedele Liekens on the world. Published monthly, Goedele brings thought-provoking stories and quality journalism.

Goedele, the monthly magazine, offers high quality journalism that goes from heart to heart (and then to the brain): fascinating stories with striking full page photography, centred around people, famous and unknown, from far away and from close by. With a classy lay-out that will make the world easier to read, in a warm and intelligent voice, empathic, humorous and with self-mockery.

Goedele Liekens first spiraled into the limelight when she became Miss Belgium in 1986 during her psychology studies in Brussels. Since then, she has become a noted author and TV-host in Belgium as well as the Netherlands, is a clinical Psychologist and Sexologist, and was asked to become spokesperson and Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Population Fund.

Goedele is launched with an initial print run of 100,000 copies and costs EUR 3.95. On 10September, the magazine will also be launched in the Netherlands with a print run of 50,000 copies; Goedele will cost EUR 4.50 in the Netherlands.

Sanoma Magazines Belgium is part of Sanoma Magazines, magazine publishing division of the SanomaWSOY Group.
