If you were wondering who was the winner in 5280’s recent acquisition of Denver Magazine, you can stop. It was 5280. Despite press releases touting print runs of 50,000 copies, Denver Magazine only had 3,000 paid subscribers. The remaining copies were dumped at local hotels and businesses. Here’s guessing 5280’s Dan Brogan got the deal of a lifetime. So much so that he has agreed to fulfill existing Denver Magazine subscriptions with 5280 issues as a goodwill gesture.
