While there has been a St. Louis Magazine
in existence for nearly 50 years, our iteration—co-owned by Ray Hartmann and Mark Vittert—has been published since 1995, when it was launched as a quarterly. The premier issue, published in spring 1995, featured a cover story on Sheryl Crow. By the fall of that year, St. Louis Magazine
had increased its frequency to bimonthly; two years later, in November 1997, the magazine made the move to monthly, which has been its schedule ever since. Together, the magazine's editorial and art staff work to make each issue a compelling blend of packages that provide a service to readers (local health tips; best restaurants; unique shopping locations; affordable family activities; suggestions for picking the right school for your child), feature articles that profile local personalities or explore critical issues, and previews and reviews of the city's latest offerings in food and culture. Presented with sharp photography and striking illustrations, St. Louis Magazine
provides an engaging, intelligent way for St. Louisans to know their region.
