Texas Monthly, Los Angeles Dominate CRMAs
Los Angeles, Hour Detroit, Memphis win general excellence.
The City and Regional Magazine Associationâ€™s annual awards have been announced, and, as was the case last year, Texas Monthly and Los Angeles magazines dominated the awards field, winning a combined 14.
Last year, the pair won a combined 29.
Los Angeles, Hour Detroit and Memphis Magazine won general excellence awards in their respective circulation categories during the 24th annual competition.
Other multiple prize winners included 5280, Boston, Chicago and Cincinnati magazines, each taking home two awards. Seven magazinesâ€”D, Philadelphia, MPLS. St Paul, Westchester, Rhode Island Monthly, Memphis and Hourâ€”each nabbed one.
Last month, Los Angeles' longtime editor-in-chief Kit Rachlis, who had held the magazineâ€™s top editorial post since 2000, decided to step down after the magazine published a controversial cover story that included an open letter calling L.A. mayor Antonio Villaraigosa a â€śfailure.â€ť
An Emmis spokesperson said Rachlisâ€™ departure was not related to the issue's publication.
