NASHVILLE – June 6, 2001 – When American Profile has its June 10 debut as an insert in The Messenger, much of the full-color national magazine’s content will look familiar to area readers because of the publication’s strong regional editorial focus.

From Close-to-Home calendars of events to profiles of Hometown heroes, American Profile’s editorial content will celebrate the interests, values and life in America’s hometowns, specifically those in this region. A profile of one of those great American hometowns – perhaps one in this area, or one just up the road – will be a special regional editorial feature of each issue.

"This regionalized component of this publication is very exciting to us because it will be a great addition to the local news and features we already provide our readers," said Rick Reynolds, publisher of The Messenger.

American Profile completes the coverage picture by also including stories on health trends, entertainment, current issues and celebrities with hometown ties.

"Daily newspapers in large markets are well-served with the existing Sunday magazines, but there are many wonderful regional stories to be told in markets with weekly and small market dailies," said Dan Hammond, American Profile, publisher and CEO. ‘American profile was created, in part, to tell those stories."

Beginning June 10, American Profile will be a regular insert in The Messenger on Sunday.
