The Los Angeles Times Magazine (also shortened to just LA) was a monthly magazine which supplemented the Sunday edition of the Los Angeles Times newspaper on the first Sunday of the month. The magazine focused on stories and photos of people, places, style, and other cultural affairs occurring in Los Angeles and its surrounding cities and communities.[1] It was published between 2000 and 2012.

History[edit]

Los Angeles Times Magazine was started in January 2000.[2] The magazine was a weekly supplemental to the Sunday edition of the Los Angeles Times newspaper. The magazine came out weekly until 2008, when the paper's editorial department stopped publishing it. Because of financial losses, the editorial board of the magazine was restructured in 2008 and the magazine became a monthly publication.[3]

In 2012, the magazine won a national prize when the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights announced that Times photographer Michael Robinson Chavez won the international photography category for his work "Broken Promise: Gold Mining in Peru's High Andes."[4]

The magazine printed its final issue on June 3, 2012.[4]

Since 2014, the California Sunday Magazine has been included in the Sunday edition.
