History

"The New York Times Upfront" was first published in 1999, but traces its roots back to Scholastic's early days. "Scholastic Senior" was the company's original newsmagazine for high school students. Its name was later changed to "Update".

In 1999, Scholastic partnered with The New York Times, and "Update" became "The New York Times Upfront". The idea was to combine the Times journalistic resources and the reporting from its news bureaus around the world with Scholastic’s ability to create magazines that meet the curricular needs of high school students and their teachers. For The New York Times, Upfront is also a way to introduce its brand and its journalism to a new generation of readers, complementing the Times’s web site, and its other education efforts.

The New York Times Upfront will celebrate its 10th anniversary in May 2009.
