944 Magazine was a regional fashion, entertainment and lifestyle publication that operated in the United States from 2001 to 2011.

History[edit]

The original 944 Media company was founded in 2002 by Mark Gorzen and Marc Lotenberg.

In March 2009, 944 Media announced acquisition of Six Degrees, a competing upscale lifestyle magazine, with editions in Atlanta, Detroit, Miami and Las Vegas as well as its web portal.[1] By October of that year, 944 ceased publication of Six Degrees and launched two new editions of 944 magazine to penetrate the Atlanta and Detroit markets.[2]

In April, 2010 944 Media, LLC. declared Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in United States Bankruptcy Court Central District of California Los Angeles Division Case No. 2:10-23240-AA. 944 Media, LLC. is represented by Landau Gottfried & Berger LLP. [3]

On June 1, 2011, 944 announced that they had published their last issue and would shut the business permanently.[4]
