Uptown Magazine Increases Circulation

Good news coming from Uptown Media: the lifestyle magazine serving affluent black readers in Washington DC, Chicago, Atlanta, NYC, Charlotte, Detroit and Philadelphia is boosting its circulation from six issues per year to eight, kicking off with the March 2011 issue. The rate base will also increase, from 200,000 to 225,000.

Says Uptown‘s editor in chief, Keija Minor:
The fact that Uptown has doubled the number of issues published annually since our start in 2004 is a clear sign of the ongoing growth of the affluent African American consumer.  Our recent decision to devote additional pages to local content underscores our commitment to reaching consumers and advertisers on a local level.
