KANSAS CITY HOMES & GARDENS KAPUT!!!



Kansas City dead media tradition is being cut down one publication at a time. And in reality, home-show-pr0n is now readily available and the Internets and even bigger publications satisfy the home coveting fix for causal readers.

Kansas City Homes & Gardens magazine, a staple in Kansas City, is ceasing operations after 27 years.

They had 70K print subscribers at one point according to their media kit . . . That's like a younger cousin to the Star . . . And that's why we see growing resentment among our newsie elite betters who cling to their Dead Tree Media jobs.

I'm surprised The Star hasn't flat lined by now they must have a lot of money coming from somewhere to keep it on life support.

Doesn't appeal to the hipsters gentrifiers, rent raisers, interlopers, transients, homogenizers and pussifiers who's idea of gardening is a kale leaf on top of a $11 cup of coffee.

Maybe it can be resurrected as "Kansas City Transit Weekly".
All the exciting news about riding the rails sipping your soy latte' and comparing successes and plans with other 24 year-old entrepreneurs. With a cover featuring Diana Kander.
And all for FREE!
Wonder where that money comes from?

Darnnnn.

The Sun Newspapers
The Olathe Daily News
The Shawnee Journal Herald
The Kansas City Times
the Squire and Other Paper

And now, KC H & G?

I might as well stop reading.

And, if Sam Brownback has his way, no one in Kansas will know how to read.

This magazine, like many others, brought about its own death. I realize it's a slippery slope and that ad revenue is important, but it got to the point that the publication was 90% ads and 10% content. I also think KC Spaces magazine ate the outdated H&G's lunch.
