Sactown Magazine, August/September 2019

When we launched SACTOWN, one of our primary motivators was that Sacramento was one of the largest American cities without a distinct national identity, and we wanted to help brand the city by telling great stories that reflect the character of this region. We believe that the city magazine format is unique in its ability to lure readers with excellent service journalism, while exposing them to big ideas, long-form journalism and civic advocacy pieces, sparking a dialogue about our shared experience as Sacramentans. SACTOWN has a circulation of 40,000 and targets educated readers between the ages of 25-65. Some are new residents eager to get to know their new city, and others are longtime locals who are passionate about their hometown.
