San Francisco Magazine Losing Most of its Editorial Staff
The monthly publication won a prestigious National Magazine Award for General Excellence this year. It is owned by Modern Luxury of Atlanta, which publishes more than 30 other city magazines including one in Silicon Valley. The company also publishes wedding and interior design titles.
Earlier this month, staffers in San Francisco were told there would be unspecified budget cuts and that the magazine would begin sharing content with other Modern Luxury titles. “We hadn’t done that before,” said Lindsey Smith, the magazine’s associate editor. Smith said she gave notice Thursday and is leaving at the end of next week to pursue a freelance career.
