The premier issue of Arlington Magazine has started rolling off the presses.
The bimonthly lifestyle magazine should start hitting newsstands and subscribers’ mailboxes late next week. In the meantime, we’ve been sent a sneak peek of the cover (left).
Articles in the new magazine include a profile of NBC News correspondent and Arlington resident Chuck Todd (entitled: “I’m Not Ron Burgundy”), a look at eating disorders among adult women, a feature on mom-and-pop eateries in a time of restaurant “gentrification” and an obligatory chat with ‘Arlington Rap’ guy Remy Munasifi.
There are also restaurant reviews, real estate statistics, a listing of community events and more.

Residents in and around Arlington, Va. now have a magazine to call their own with the launch of Arlington Magazine. The new print magazine, the sibling publication of Bethesda Magazine, explores and celebrates life in Arlington, McLean and Falls Church.
“Arlington Magazine brings the spirit of our community to life,” said Greg Hamilton, publisher and co-founder of Arlington Magazine. “There is a tremendous sense of pride in our community and Arlington Magazine taps into residents’ desire to learn more about where they live and feel more deeply connected to it.”
Hamilton launches the new bimonthly magazine with partner Steve Hull, a veteran publisher who owns Bethesda Magazine, which launched in 2004 and has achieved widespread popularity in the communities it serves.
“We believe that Arlington Magazine—like Bethesda Magazine—will be successful because it will deliver high quality content that is truly local and relevant, while providing local businesses with a targeted, cost-effective way to reach educated, affluent residents,” Hull said.
Published six times a year, Arlington Magazine brings the editorial and design standards of a national magazine to the community while covering the lives and lifestyles of local residents. Twenty-five thousand copies of the first issue will be distributed to subscribers and prospective subscribers, local newsstands and other retail establishments, and prominent public places, such as doctors and dentists’ offices.
Regular topics in Arlington Magazine include people, homes and real estate, restaurants, health and fitness, beauty, shopping and style, parenting, schools and education, community issues, arts and entertainment, regional travel and local history.
Hamilton launches Arlington Magazine with 20 years of experience in magazine publishing and digital media. Prior to co-founding Arlington Magazine, he was the chief marketing officer for Congressional Quarterly. Hamilton is a long-time Arlington resident. Hull has been in the magazine publishing business for more than 25 years. He was senior vice president at Atlantic Media before he launched Bethesda Magazine. Jenny Sullivan is the editor of Arlington Magazine. Previously, she was the senior architecture and design editor for Builder Magazine.
