MINNEAPOLIS – April 14, 2017 – Star Tribune Media Co., Minnesota’s largest media company, today previewed the debut issue of Star Tribune Magazine, which will be delivered to more than 225,000 Sunday home-delivery households on April 16 as part of their regular subscriptions. The magazine will also be available for purchase at more than 275 retail outlets in the 13-county Minneapolis–St. Paul metro area starting on April 17.

Each issue—featuring 100-percent new material from Star Tribune’s newsroom—will carry a range of in-depth features, profiles, and other lifestyle stories on the arts, fashion, home design and décor, culinary trends, and more. The Spring issue’s cover story on the late Prince’s musical empire—written by Chris Riemenschneider and illustrated by Kevin Cantrell—is accompanied by stories on style, food, travel, and more.
All Star Tribune metro home-delivery subscribers can receive the Star Tribune Magazine as part of their subscription. Consumers can also purchase copies at more than 275 retail outlets and newsstands throughout the area, including Lunds & Byerlys, Hy-Vee, and Mills Fleet Farm.
