While Cincinnati is a regional mag, editors pride themselves on living up to standards more akin to national pubs.
Similarly, although the magazine is aimed at an “affluent, upper middle class, well-educated readership,” editorial is not pigeonholed by demographics, said executive editor Linda Vaccariello.
A feature in the May 2012 issue, for instance, detailed the short but rich-in-spirit life and bizarre death of a punk drummer nicknamed “Bones.” She explained, “We knew this was the sort of human-interest story that our readers are compelled to. They read the newspaper; they’re just as puzzled as the rest of us about who this guy was and how he came to lose his life in such a strange circumstance.”
