Tiger Beat is an American fan magazine marketed primarily to adolescents. It is currently published by Laufer Media, Inc. of Los Angeles, California, which also produces Bop magazine.

Founded in 1965 by Charles "Chuck" Laufer and his brother, Ira, Tiger Beat has as its forte teen idol gossip, movies, music and fashion. Its publisher, first named as The Laufer Co., also founded and published the teen magazines FaVE (now defunct) and Right On! (now owned by another publisher). Jeannie Franklyn used to write a column for Tiger Beat until her untimely death in 1969.

Current ownership Edit

Tiger Beat was sold to Primedia late in 1998 by former publisher Sterling/MacFadden. It was purchased in 2003 by Scott Laufer, the son of Chuck Laufer.
