Backgrounder and Quick Facts

2010 marks Yankee’s 75th year as New England’s magazine, fulfilling founder Robb Sagendorph’s gut feeling that the six-state region should have a magazine of its own, “for Yankee readers, by Yankee writers, and about Yankeedom.” During this long history, Yankee has remained true to Robb’s mission while interpreting the region for contemporary readers.

The September/October issue is the special anniversary issue, but throughout the entire year, favorite classic stories will be posted on YankeeMagazine.com, including the best articles on adventure (Mondays), history (Tuesdays), food and recipes (Wednesdays), people and places (Thursdays), and “three-minute reads” (Fridays). Other online exclusives celebrating Yankee Magazine’s milestone include mystery photo contests, New England trivia quizzes, a slide show of Yankee’s most beloved covers, a new blog about “what Yankee means to me,” and a video version of the monthly musings of editor-in-chief and New England icon Jud Hale.

Yankee Magazine was founded in 1935 and is based in Dublin, New Hampshire. It is the only magazine devoted to New England through its coverage of travel, home, food, and features. With a paid circulation of more than 350,000 and a total audience of nearly 2 million, it is published by Yankee Publishing Incorporated (YPI), a family-owned and independent magazine publisher. YPI also publishes the nation’s oldest continuously produced periodical, The Old Farmer’s Almanac. More information about Yankee: New England’s Magazine is available at: YankeeMagazine.com

Editorial Coverage

Features

Yankee features the work of inspired writers and photographers with many different stories to tell. One overarching theme remains constant: New England is a singular place, unlike anywhere on earth. Journalistic essays tie together past, present, and future New England while celebrating its culture, artistry, landscape, people, and style. Yankee also provides entertaining and useful service content that’s easy to read, visual, and full of tips and advice on ways to enjoy New England.

Travel

Travel coverage has been a cornerstone of Yankee Magazine’s content since its inception, mostly due to New England’s geographical, seasonal, and cultural appeal. As a region, New England is a compact yet diverse travel destination. Within one day and a short drive, visitors can experience rugged, mountainous terrain, ocean views, vibrant cultural urban areas, and small-town living. New England offers more variety in a concentrated area than anywhere else in the United States.
