Our Story

In 1997 our founder started a college newspaper on the Louisiana State University campus. Through years of innovation that college paper turned into Baton Rouge’s alternative weekly and today, a beautiful monthly magazine that reaches more readers under 40 than any other local media.

After making the cold trek north in 2005 he upset the status quo by starting a similar paper at The Ohio State University. That snowballed into a series of magazine and website launches that has helped 614 Media Group become the largest independent player in the local media scene.

For 20 years, 614 Media Group has thrived by never settling for second-best. Every day our incredible team of creatives and professionals work hard to live up to this standard for our audience, clients and community.

Results Matter

We love helping clients reach their goals by putting brands face-to-face with the best consumers our city has to offer. Our products deliver on this promise through quality and value.
