Introducing … Philadelphia Sunday
This weekend those of you who subscribe to Philly Mag’s newsletters will see something new show up in your inbox. It’s called Philadelphia Sunday, and it’s a brand-new digital product that we hope feels like a cross between a weekly magazine and the good, old-fashioned Sunday newspaper.
What’s in it? A mix of all-new, digital-only features and columns, plus highlights from our latest print edition. Our goal is to give you something you can relax and enjoy as you sip a cup of coffee on Sunday morning — timely news pieces, compelling long reads, provocative columns, and smart lifestyle stories that will help you get the most out of Philadelphia in the week ahead.
Philadelphia Sunday is the latest in a series of adventures we’ve embarked upon in the last few years. Half a decade ago we were mostly just a print publisher. Today, in addition to two thriving print products (Philadelphia magazine and Philadelphia Wedding), we have a fast-growing web site with 10 robust channels as well as a full slate of magazine-produced live events (including last week’s mega-successful ThinkFest).
And I’m proud to say people are noticing what we’re doing. In addition to winning the general excellence award from the City and Regional Magazine Association last spring, this week eight Philly Mag staffers were named as finalists in the Philadelphia Pen and Pencil Club’s annual journalism awards. No other outlet in the city — including the Inquirer and Daily News — had more. (The really good news: You get to vote on who wins.)
The media world is changing quickly, but we couldn’t be more excited by what we see. Because our ambition is bold: We want to be part of your life every day, the leading media brand for smart, influential, plugged-in Philadelphians.
