Northshore magazine sold

Chicago publisher Sun-Times Media sells lifestyle magazine to Make It Better.

The two companies did not disclose the financial terms of the deal. The June issue Northshore will be the first after the merger. Readers visiting the magazine website will be redirected to makeitbetter.net in the next few days.

Currently, the Make It Better magazine reaches 52,000 homes in North Chicago. The merger with Northshore will reportedly increase its home delivery circulation to around 70,000. Sun-Times, which owns the Chicago Sun-Times and other newspapers, said the deal allows it to focus on its core business of online, mobile and print media.
