Open Sky Media Acquires Marin MagazineBy Paul Wormley
Marin Magazine serves an affluent readership that is attracted to the magazine's high quality content centered around local arts and entertainment, food, home & design, fashion, social and feature stories.
Nikki and Jim Wood, founders of Marin Magazine, will continue to lead Marin Magazine's experienced and talented team of writers, photographers, artists, designers and account representatives.
Marin County is good fit with Open Sky Media's desire to operate in healthy, affluent markets with strong local economies. Marin County has the second highest median income west of the Mississippi River and the second highest median home value in the United States. The county is also a major tourists destination thanks to its proximity to San Francisco and Golden Gate Bridge, abundant retail and dining options, and rich outdoor attractions including Muir Woods and Point Reyes National Seashore.
Open Sky Media was introduced to Marin Magazine by a buy-side intermediary. Open Sky Media paid a success fee to the intermediary at closing.
Open Sky Media continues to seek additional city/lifestyle magazines with strong brands that serve healthy, affluent markets and that compliment Open Sky Media's other titles including Austin Monthly, Austin Home, San Antonio Magazine, Slice Magazine, and now, Marin Magazine.
