944 magazine folding, may emerge in form of city guide

The luxury tourist magazine 944, which has a Las Vegas edition, is closing with the June issue. But the publication may re-emerge in the form of a city guide.

Shadow Media, which bought magazine publisher 944 Media in February for a reported $1.3 million, may resurrect the Las Vegas version of 944 as the guide.

The website foliomag.com suggests the new Las Vegas guide may become part of a partnership with Wendoh Media, publisher of the local weekly publication Seven.

Wendoh Media officials in Las Vegas said they were not ready to comment on future plans.

944 Magazine is a free luxury magazine distributed in markets such as Las Vegas Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, Miami, Orange County, Calif., Phoenix, San Diego and San Francisco.
