Len Burnett Buys Back Uptown

Uptown is going back to its roots. According to The New York Post, Len Burnett — a co-founder of Uptown — has bought the title back from Vibe Holdings, which acquired it in 2011.

Burnett, who had been co-CEO of Uptown Media Group and chief revenue officer of Vibe Holdings, will separate from Vibe to concentrate on Uptown. He has already appointed Isoul Harris as the magazine’s new editor-in-chief. Uptown’s former editor, Angela Bronner Helm, left early this month.

Burnett didn’t say how much he paid for the magazine, only that “They [Vibe Holdings] just wanted to put more emphasis on Vibe and the digital portion, and they gave us the opportunity to buy back Uptown.”
