“Newport has always been a town that embraces history. So when Newport Life closed in March after 29 years, many people felt they had lost an old friend. It’s exciting to see the magazine return so quickly, and once again under local ownership,” said former Newport Life magazine editor Fred Albert.
Katelyn McSherry, a Newport County resident for more than 25 years, has been chosen to lead the publication as its new editor. McSherry knows Newport Life very well, having previously served as head of the magazine’s marketing and events department earlier in his career. Chester Allen, a journalist with several lifestyle publications under his belt, will also join the new team. He will act as the publication’s interim editor.
Newport life will be relaunched in summer 2022 and will maintain its current theme with a new look for the magazine while expanding its editorial coverage to include:
The history of Newport with a strong focus on the Golden Age
Important people in Newport history
The substantial change and growth of real estate
The historic and remarkable architecture of the island
“It’s very exciting to take a Newport staple and breathe new life into it so that it continues to be the go-to source for all of Newport for years to come,” said publisher, Katelyn McSherry. “Newport Life is the ultimate lifestyle guide to Newport County’s past, present and future, and we will continue to create community and outlet for all residents and visitors.”
