Charlotte is the North Carolina city’s largest magazine, and the only pub about the metropolis itself. The most important characteristic of its readers is that they take an active interest in the city. And, while there are other niche competitors, editor and associate publisher Richard Thurmond said Charlotte is unique in its depth and breadth of coverage. “We focus on how to make this city a better place. It’s a manner of service,” he said.

Editors at the pub are open to PR pitches and love when publicists can deliver an inside scoop. “We want to know about new store and restaurant openings before everyone else does,” said senior editor Aleigh Acerni. Other pitches related to the community are also welcome.
