'LA Confidential,' 'Capitol File' Magazines To Go Digital-Only In 2020

Modern Luxury is shuttering the print editions of LA Confidential and Capitol File next year.

LA Confidential and Capitol File are luxury lifestyle magazines that serve Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. audiences, respectively. 

The New York Post reports the print magazines will live entirely online starting next year, broadening their focus to national coverage of high-end lifestyle content.

LA Confidential and Capitol File were among a bundle of 17 publications Modern Luxury purchased in 2017from GreenGale Publishing.

Last week, Modern Luxury launched a digital men's luxury lifestyle site called MensBook.com.

Separately, The Fresno Bee told its readers it was making changes to its print schedule after “seeing shifts in how our readers are engaging with this valued content.” 

“More and more of our customers are engaging with our local journalism online,” reads a note to readers from publisher Tim Ritchey on The Fresno Bee’s site. “This is not only a trend in Fresno, it is a widespread trend in the media industry, and in fact, all industries. As reader habits change ,we are adapting to serve them in new ways.”

Beginning January 11, The Fresno Bee will no longer produce a printed newspaper on Saturday. 

It will launch a weekend edition that includes expanded print newspapers on Fridays and Sundays, with comics, puzzles, TV listings and local sports coverage.

“We are making this strategic change to invest in our future and to continue to be your source of news and information on all the platforms you choose," Ritchey told readers.
