History[edit]

The magazine started under the name Replay in 1969. Its president and publisher was Steve Apted, and its editor was Doris Lieberman. The home office was in the basement of the local "Cheshire Inn" hotel.[2] From 1969 to 1977 it was known as St. Louisan OCLC 6462976, then changing to its current title of St. Louis magazine OCLC 5130754. In 1990 it was acquired by the St. Louis Business Journal. In 1994 it was acquired by The Riverfront Times, and eventually took on as its editor the author Harper Barnes, who remained until 2001, and then left to concentrate on writing books, though he remained as senior writer and movie columnist.[3][4]
