Fort Lauderdale Magazine Spiked
This news day is slower than Miguel Cabrera's metabolism, but there is some unconfirmed news to report: Las Olas Magazine has gone under, according to a good source. Kaput.
I'm still gathering info, but the word is that the mag was losing money and the owners -- an outfit called HPJ Media Ventures Fund, LLC -- just decided to fold it (as they did Miami's LRM Magazine a few months ago. Some might say LOM never had a chance. The publication, under editor Lori Capullo Lawrence, was making a go at becoming a real city magazine, with interesting stories by talented freelancers, including a back-of-the-book column by Jim DeFede. But don't worry, HPJ's other local pub, the hard-hitting and always controversial International Yachtsman , appears to be doing just fine.
