History[edit] Chicago was established in 1952.[3] It was founded as the programming guide for the classical radio station WFMT and was called Chicago Guide. The name was changed in 1975.[4] In 1981, Chicago introduced the Nelson Algren Award, a short story contest that the magazine later abandoned before it was picked up by the Chicago Tribune newspaper.[5] In December 1986, Chicago Educational Television Association, which had owned WFMT and WTTW, announced that it would sell the magazine for $17 million to a joint venture formed by Metropolitan Detroit Magazine and Adams Communications.[6] The deal closed in January 1987. Landmark Communications bought the magazine in 1990. Primedia bought the magazine in 1995.[7] Tribune bought the magazine from Primedia in 2002.[8]


Staff[edit] Chicago magazine's first editor was Allen Kelson. He later became editor-in-chief, and then publisher.[9] In 1984, Don Gold, the former managing editor of Playboy magazine, became the magazine's editorial director, in a new position created between editor-in-chief Allen Kelson and editor John Fink.[10] From 1986 until 1991, Hillel Levin served as the magazine's editor. He left in early 1991 to join other investors in buying a Miami-based and Caribbean media group.[11] Levin was succeeded by Richard Babcock, who up to that point had been assistant managing editor of Rupert Murdoch's New York magazine.[12] In April 2009, the magazine laid off longtime literary editor Christine Newman.[13] In December 2009, it was announced that longtime Chicago restaurant critic Dennis Ray Wheaton would be leaving his position and that Jeff Ruby would replace him.[14] In April 2011, Richard Babcock stepped down as Chicago′s editor after exactly 20 years in the job.[15] In August 2011, the magazine named Beth Fenner to replace Babcock.[16] In December 2011, Chicago magazine's managing editor, Shane Tritsch, resigned after 18 years with the magazine after he was passed over for the top editorial post there.[17] In 2012, longtime Chicago magazine senior writer Marcia Froelke Coburn left Chicago magazine to join Time Out Chicago as a contributing writer.[18] Also in 2012, longtime Chicago magazine senior editor Nora O'Donnell left the magazine to join Playboy magazine in southern California as senior editor and research chief.[19] In March 2014, Chicago magazine's No. 2 editor, Cassie Walker Burke, left the magazine to join Crain's Chicago Business as an assistant managing editor.[20] In November 2015, Chicago magazine's award-winning features editor, David Bernstein, took a buyout and left the company.[21] In March 2016, the magazine's editor, Beth Fenner, was fired after more than four years, and the magazine's publisher, Tom Conradi, also was removed from his post.[22] In their places, Susanna Homan was named editor and publisher.[23]
