Modern Luxury Acquires Aspen

Modern Luxury, publisher of 40 titles in 12 cities, has acquired Aspen magazine. Aspen publishes six times per year and is edited by Janet O’Grady, who maintains her role.

“I have been fortunate to know Janet since she purchased the magazine more than 20 years ago and have continued to be amazed by the stories she has broken and the overall quality of the product,” said Alan Klein, group publisher of Modern Luxury, in a statement. “Janet has developed a brand that is recognized across the U.S. for its ability to attract the attention of some of the most important and influential people in the country.”

“I’m excited to be part of a company that is bullish on great content and print, and is staying ahead of the curve in integrating print with digital platforms in these game-changing times,” added O’Grady.

Aspen was founded in 1974.

LA Mag Names New Publisher

Los Angeles Magazine has a new publisher: Amy Saralegui. Emmis Publishing just announced Saralegui’s new gig which brings her over from another Emmis publication, Texas Monthly. She replaces outgoing LA Mag publisher Alan Klein who left for Angeleno.

At Texas Monthly, Saralegui served as advertising director since 2003 and was in charge of overseeing the magazine’s Dallas, Houston and Austin sales offices and development. Prior to that post, she was associate and interim publisher of Latina < magazine and director of retail marketing for Polo Ralph Lauren.

In the release, Saralegui said, “Los Angeles is a dominant brand in one of the most dynamic media markets. It has continued growth potential, and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to collaborate with the magazine’s sister publications.”

In case you were wondering, those include Tu Ciudad Los Angeles and Orange Coast magazines.
