The problem is that it is neither. I get close to knowing what it is, but its that ear on the lower case G that throws me off.
If anyone can help, it would be appreciated.
What threw you off is that these are two different typefaces: the top one appears to be, in fact, Tahoma Bold, but the bottom one most definitely is not.
I suppose the scales were played with, or perhaps it is just a much lesser known typeface in the sub heading?
Either way, I'll manage.
Thanks for the help.
Subheading was Calibri.
Don’t know what it is, but I am not convinced that the headline is Tahoma. The subline is clearly not Calibri.
It would help probably to know which magazine this is from.
Prelo is quite close, but not an exact match. The ear of the g is a match, if that's the deciding factor.
If this, as I suspect, comes from a scan of a Spin Magazine article, then it may be a custom typeface created by Hoefler & Frere-Jones, whose client list includes Spin.
