Suburban Life Media is a Downers Grove, Illinois-based publisher of 20 weekly newspapers in Chicago's western and northern suburbs. Formerly known as Suburban Life Publications, it was purchased from GateHouse Media and renamed by current owner Shaw Media in October 2012.[1]

Recent history[edit]

In October 2012, Gatehouse Media sold the publisher to Shaw Media. Upon acquisition, Shaw Media moved some of the Suburban Life newspapers to other units. The three "Republican" newspapers moved under the Kane County Chronicle editorial umbrella. The two "Farmside" newspapers were combined into McHenry Farmside and moved under Northwest Herald. Under Shaw Media ownership, Suburban Life Media introduced the Suburban Life magazine, which followed the similar format and basic template as Shaw Media's Lake County,McHenry County and Kane County magazines.

In October 2013, Shaw Media revamped the Suburban Life newspapers that haven't been moved to other publishers. All newspapers were renamed to "[Municipality] Suburban Life." The previously unrelated Lake County Journal, Gurnee Life and Barrington Life were moved to Suburban Life Media and were redesigned to fit the publisher's format, becoming Lake County Suburban Life, Gurnee Suburban Life and Barrington Suburban Life, respectively. As part of the revamp, the Lake County Magazine became the Lake County edition of the Suburban Life magazine.
