Outside Editor Discusses Possibility of Outside Sale

Back in August, we spoke with Outside editor Chris Keyes. During the interview, we asked Keyes about the possibility of the publication’s owner, Larry Burke, selling the publication, especially now that Outside’s Go is making the brand more robust.

With the addition of Outside’s Go, you seem to be building a brand. Are there any discussions of selling the titles?

People ask about Larry’s involvement in the magazine and I always say, if he’s really involved that’s a good sign. I tell my staff that because I think that he is so passionate about this brand that I can’t see him doing anything else, and so I don’t think he’s ready to let go of it yet. But he also sees it as something that he wants to grow. Magazines aren’t necessarily growing right now, but you add another title, which I think will help make us more robust.
