Mid-Atlantic Media acquires MetroKids magazine

Mid-Atlantic Media, LLC announced Feb. 8, 2021 that it has expanded its media holdings with the acquisition of the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, MetroKids publication.

MetroKids, a regional parenting magazine covering Philadelphia and its Pennsylvania suburbs, South Jersey and Delaware, was sold by KidStuff Publications Inc. and its president, Nancy Lisagor. Terms of the deal were not released.

“We are pleased to align MetroKids with an award-winning publishing group that understands parenting publications, and we are confident that MetroKids will be a great addition to their family of publications,” Lisagor said.

Mid-Atlantic Media CEO and Publisher Craig Burke said that the acquisition of MetroKids fits in well with the media company’s strategic plans. “We’ve continued to add to this niche of parenting publications because we know how essential the content is as a resource for parents and families. We have published Baltimore’s Child for six years, Washington Family for four years and Frederick’s Child for two years, and we continue to be enthusiastic about this niche industry. We’ve seen the great work Nancy has done with MetroKids for many years. When the opportunity to acquire presented itself, we knew it would be a great fit within our portfolio of publications.

“We look forward to providing valuable content to families in the Delaware Valley,” Burke continued, “and helping our advertisers grow their business with MetroKids.”
