San Diego Magazine has been in the market since 1948 and has grown from a single monthly lifestyle publication into an expansive multi-media company. Our product San Diego Magazine is a 75-year-old, national award–winning media company covering the culture and people of San Diego with a team of smart, talented creatives who are passionate about our city.
No matter the topic—food, drink, art, music, theater, architecture, design, travel, outdoors, entrepreneurs, business, social issues, or random curiosities—our people really, really know their stuff. With our iconic magazine, podcasts, videos and films, social media, e-newsletters, and events, SDM Media and Studios covers San Diego in a way no one else does.
“At its best, SDM isn’t about tacos or music or business or retail or architecture. It’s about people. The people who make that taco, build that business, design that home.”
At San Diego Magazine, we believe local media is imperative to community growth, and we believe local media should be owned and operated by local community members. Our mission is to continue building a media company that authentically reflects the diverse and changing communities it covers, and to inform and entertain our readers with creativity, integrity, and accuracy.
Meet the people who obsess over San Diego to bring you San Diego Magazine, along with our award-winning social media, podcasts, videos, and events.
