Orange Coast Magazine, April 2019

Orange Coast magazine uses smart and timely editorial content that represents the diversity of people and interests across Orange County to connect with the community. Because it covers 34 cities within Orange County, the magazine focuses on trends and issues that reflect the interests of the whole county. Each issue features an award-winning blend of service journalism, authoritative articles on dining and style, home design, profiles of community leaders, arts coverage, and compelling photography. The magazine is lively, provocative, and ingrained in the area since 1974 like no other in the market. Most readers are between ages 35 and 69 with a high household income and at least a college degree. “Orange Coast magazine is a staple in my home. It gives us great ideas about what to do and where to go,” is a reaction reflected by many readers. With a wide variety of articles—such as profiles on local residents, dining reviews, and essays showing all aspects of life here—the magazine is relevant and surprising.

With award-winning lifestyle journalism and design, Desert Companion does more than inform and entertain. We spark dialogue, engage people and define the spirit of the Las Vegas Valley.
Aspen Sojourner, Midwinter/Spring 2019
Aspen Sojourner has been the Roaring Fork Valley's preeminent general-interest magazine for the past 25 years. Its mission is to provide visitors, part-time residents, and year-round locals with an informative, engaging magazine that deepens their relationship with Aspen, Snowmass, and the Roaring Fork Valley in the most authentic way possible. Serving such a diverse mix of readers–some born in Aspen, others in town for the first time, plus every length of relationship in between–is challenging. To pull it off, Aspen Sojourner focuses on deep reporting, the highest possible quality in writing and photography, and, again, authenticity, which appeals to all types. Distribution includes Aspen- and Snowmass-area hotel rooms, subscribers around the world (including in 49 of 50 United States), newsstands in more than 20 states, and United, Delta and American Airline Clubs at more than 77 locations in the United States.
