Dozens of Scripps Ranch business owners, officials, community representatives and other invited guests joined Susco Media Inc. executives and staff for a special “92131 Magazine VIP Launch Party” in January at Nugent’s Firegrille – celebrating the local publication’s premier issue.

Attendees not only enjoyed Nugent’s cuisine and refreshments, but saw a sneak peek at the new community magazine, enjoyed a special video presentation, and participated in special drawings for a variety of prizes.

Hosting the event was 92131 Magazine Executive Director of Business Development Suzy Sarver.  Others in attendance representing the publication included Publisher Derrick Breaux, Director of Production Tara Pritchett, and Susco Media’s Chief Executive Officer Scott McElhaney.

92131 Magazine is the third publication launched in the past 16 months by San Diego-based Susco Media.  Serving the Scripps Ranch community, 92131 Magazine provides community features, profiles and information in an attractive, full-color, glossy print publication.  Delivered by direct mail to every single family home and condominium in U.S. Postal Service Zip Code 92131, the magazine also has a number of racks for single copy distribution in select locations – and boasts a total circulation of more than 15,000 per issue.  The vibrant, colorful publication publishes six times a year and features an easy-to-read format and professional design that ensures thorough readership.

“This is an exciting time for Susco Media,” said McElhaney.  “Not only is the company continuing to expand, but our existing publications, websites and other media operations are growing at an unprecedented pace.  This is a tribute to the excellent team of professionals in place at our local operations, the response from readers of our publications, and the overwhelming support from businesses in the communities served by our local magazines.”

In addition to the print publication, 92131 Magazine is complemented by a robust website at www.92131Magazine.com, an active Facebook page at www.facebook.com/92131Magazine, and produces a regular stream of information and comments via Twitter, according to Breaux.

“Just with our other publications, we produce 92131 Magazine with the goal of providing readers something they want to read,” Breaux said.  “In addition, we provide a variety of marketing options in addition to the print publication to assist local businesses in getting solid response for their investment.”

In addition to 92131 Magazine, Susco Media publishes 92127 Magazine in the 4S Ranch, Del Sur and Santaluz area; and 92129 Magazine in the Rancho Penasquitos area – and the www.92127Magazine.com and www.92129Magazine.com websites.
