City and Regional Magazine Association
Many regional magazines have begun growing their 'verified' circulation levels to compensate for falling subscription and single copy sales, while ignoring digital as an alternative approach.
The city/regional category of magazines is a fascinating mix of business models from high profile paid circulation titles, to those that use "verified" circulation to maintain their rate bases, to those who are more or less completely free. The reason for the wide range of business models is also that there is a wide range of editorial strategies being employed.
The 2014 National City and Regional Magazine Awards finalists have been announced.
Topping the list with double-digit nominations are Los Angeles Magazine, Philadelphia Magazine, Texas Monthly, and Washingtonian.
Magazines with five or more nominations include 5280 (Denver), Atlanta Magazine, Boston Magazine, Chicago Magazine, Cincinnati Magazine, D Magazine, Indianapolis Monthly and Seattle Met.
