Aspen Magazine has a new owner.
Aspen Magazine circa 2005.



Modern Luxury, which publishes some 40 titles in a dozen cities, has acquired the magazine from longtime local Janet O'Grady.

“I have been fortunate to know Janet since she purchased the magazine more than 20 years ago and have continued to be amazed by the stories she has broken and the overall quality of the product,” Alan Klein, group publisher of Modern Luxury, said in a prepared statement. “Janet has developed a brand that is recognized across the U.S. for its ability to attract the attention of some of the most important and influential people in the country.”

Modern Luxury is owned by Atlanta-based Dickey Publishing Co.

O'Grady will stay on as Aspen Magazine's editor-in-chief.

“I’m excited to be part of a company that is bullish on great content and print, and is staying ahead of the curve in integrating print with digital platforms in these game-changing times,” said O’Grady.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Aspen Magazine was founded in 1974, according to its website.

Modern Luxury publishes magazines that focus on high society and lifestyles in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Hawaii, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and, now, Aspen.
