LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas newspaper plans to launch a lifestyle magazine for black locals and tourists in January.
Co-publisher Kimberly Bailey-Tureaud says the monthly magazine will feature stories about entertainment, shopping, restaurants, local celebrities and businesses of interest.
Publishers say future issues of the magazine will include stories about presidential candidate Barack Obama, the daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. and basketball player Marcus Banks.
The magazine will be inserted within the Las Vegas Review-Journal for subscribers who request it, and some news racks will also carry it.
Review-Journal Publisher Sherman Frederick says Bailey-Tureaud and her husband were ideal partners for the magazine because of their Las Vegas ties.
