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 Phoenix in 2001 by Marc Lotenberg.[1]

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.[2] By October of that year, 944 Media ceased publication of Six Degrees and launched two new editions of 944 magazine to penetrate the Atlanta and Detroit markets.[3]

In April, 2010 944 Media, LLC. declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy in United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California, Los Angeles Division (Case No. 2:10-23240-AA). 944 Media, LLC. was represented by Landau Gottfried & Berger LLP. [4]

On June 1, 2011, 944 announced that they had published their last issue and would shut the business permanently.[5][1]
