Los Angeles Magazine

Los Angeles has chronicled life in the second-largest U.S. city since the magazine’s founding by Geoff Miller in the spring of 1961. The definitive resource for Angelenos, Los Angeles covers the people, food, culture, arts and entertainment, fashion, lifestyle, and news that defines Southern California with a signature mix of feature-length writing, service journalism, investigative reporting, and design. Led by editor-in-chief Mary Melton, the magazine is the recipient of three National Magazine Awards in addition to numerous other industry honors (you can see all of the magazine’s award-winning content here). With more than 800,000 monthly readers and 140,000 monthly subscribers, Los Angeles is the only local publication with 100% paid and verified readership.

Los Angeles’s Web site, LAmag.com, is the go-to site for people who want to keep up with what matters in Los Angeles from those who know the city best. Updated daily, the Web site offers original coverage of culture, food, fashion, local history, news and the people who shape it.


In addition to Los Angeles’ annual sell-out epicurean fete, The Food Event, and our popular Breakfast Conversation discussion series with magazine editors and city leaders, the magazine’s event team draws a high-powered and well-heeled audience to more than 135 experiences each year. Los Angeles magazine events bring editorial content to life particularly in the areas of fashion, food, arts & culture, entertainment, and luxury lifestyle.
