Burlington, Vt.-based Seven Days has announced the purchase of Kids VT, a monthly parenting publication that has been operating since 1994.
According to a press release, Seven Days associate publishers Colby Roberts, Don Eggert and Cathy Resmer will play an active role in revamping the publication’s print edition and its website — Kidsvt.com:
[Seven Days Publisher Paula] Routly says the decision to purchase another title was motivated at least in part by the number of Seven Days employees who are having children. “At least half our staff are parents now,” she says. “It’s made us realize that we have an opportunity to grow in this direction.”
Though primarily geared toward parents, Kids VT will be “kid-safe,” Routly promises. “If children find it lying around, great. Of course, when they’re grown-up enough, we hope they’ll graduate to Seven Days.”
Roughly translated, the management of Seven Days would like to assure the readers of Kids VT that there are no immediate plans to publish a Queer Issue or accept medicinal marijuana ads.
