Jefferson City Magazine Comes Home to Local Ownership
Jefferson City, Missouri (May 21, 2019) — Jefferson City Magazine is delighted to announce that Janelle Haley and Kate Morrow, two long-term employees of Jefferson City Magazine, along with Missy Creed McFerron and Sarah Bohl, co-owners of Dogwood Social, Campus Coworking Space, and jeffcityblog.com, have recently purchased the ownership of the magazine from The Business Times Company, a Columbia, MO publisher. Collectively, they bring 15+ years in graphic design, 20+ years in print media, and 30+ years in marketing experience for businesses. Former publisher, Tami Turner, will mentor the new owners as a consultant throughout the transition.
Jefferson City Magazine is a local, bi-monthly publication that reaches more than 32,000 active, influential and engaged readers in print and online. The team invests in the community and creates partnerships to help develop successful people and a great place to be at home, at work, and at ease.
“After 14 years, we are proud to bring the ownership of Jefferson City Magazine home and continue to strengthen our partnerships within our community,” Haley says.
On May 8th, the group of women announced their new ownership publicly on Facebook Live engaging over 3,500 positive likes, comments, and shares and nearly 5k views. Morrow adds, “We’re beyond thrilled with the outpouring of support from the community. It has exceeded our expectations and excites us even more for what’s to come.”
The new headquarters will be located at Campus Coworking Space, located at 619A E Capitol Ave. The September/October issue will be the first to print under new ownership; it will hit newsstands the beginning of September. Readers will notice a fresh update in content and aesthetic, while still staying true to the magazine’s voice as a fun, authoritative expert on all things Jefferson City.
“Jefferson City Magazine has an established brand that people in Jefferson City look forward to engaging with and aspire to be in. It is an honor and privilege to be the new publisher of Jefferson City Magazine,” Missy Creed McFerron says.
“We are excited to jump on board and to continue to cultivate the relationships within our community,” Sarah Bohl says.
