Los Angeles Magazine Loses Its Publisher

Folio Magazine is reporting there is a major restructuring underway at Los Angeles Magazine parent company Emmis Publishing. Executive vice president Susie Love, Texas Monthly publisher April Hinkle, Cincinnati Magazine publisher Patrice Watson and technology manager Tom Shock are all out — with major consequences for LA.

As part of the restructuring, Los Angeles magazine publisher Amy Saralegui will relocate to Texas and transition into a new dual role as vice president and group publisher of national sales for Emmis Publishing, as well as publisher of Texas Monthly. Saralegui will oversee national sales on behalf of all Emmis publications and will work with Texas monthly president Elynn Russell to design and execute local sales and marketing strategies for the magazine.

Emmis reps tell Folio they are actively seeking a new publisher for Los Angeles.
