Humor (and Impress) Editors at Cincinnati

Cincinnati In addition to publishing keen narratives, editors at Cincinnati have an eye for good humor as well. Although the city itself was once dubbed “Porkopolis” for its history of hog butchering, the mag tapped a freelancer to cover local officials’ attempts to stem damage caused by feral hogs terrorizing a nearby county. How horrific.

Since it was founded in the late 60s, the regional mag has proved it can play with the big boys. Feature in point: Kathy Y. Wilson‘s article on local conservative radio host Bill Cunningham earned the pub a 2007 nomination for a National Magazine Award alongside profiles from National Geographic, New York magazine, The New Yorker and Vanity Fair.

Now the mag is looking for fresh (skip the hog) meat from journos with an “engaging, unique voice,” executive editor Linda Vaccariello said.
