Dear Shareholder:

We previously sent you proxy materials for the Meredith Corporation Annual Meeting of Shareholders to be held on November 11, 2020. To date, we have not received your proxy. Your Board of Directors recommends that shareholders vote FOR all items on the agenda, including the proposed amendment to our Restated Articles of Incorporation.

Therefore, your vote is important, no matter how many or how few shares you may own. To ensure that your shares are represented at the meeting, please vote today by telephone, via the Internet, or by signing, dating and returning the enclosed proxy card in the envelope provided.

Very truly yours,
