22CM magazine found within North Shore newspapers, in Evanston and Chicago

It’s finally here. 

Months of careful planning and development has led to the launch of 22nd Century Media’s much-anticipated first magazine, Chicagoly, and you won’t have to look far to find a copy. 

Chicagoly magazine, which uses substantive articles to tell Chicagoland’s greatest stories, is being distributed to select locations in Chicago and Evanston and within 22nd Century Media’s seven North Shore Publications, which are delivered free of charge to 50,000 residents. 

Inside the magazine, Chicagoly readers can enjoy “in-depth storytelling, unique commentary and inspiring narratives,” about the “topics, people and places most important to Chicagoans,” according to the magazine’s website,

The cover of the inaugural issue of Chicagoly features original artwork from artist Mike Hagel, setting the tone for a magazine full of substantial and vibrant stories, which include interviews with actor Joe Mantegna, a native Chicagoan; former Chicago Cub great Mark Grace; and Possessionista Dana Weiss, the popular Deerfield blogger; as well as a review of Chicago’s Andersonville, a captivating recount of the 1893 World’s Fair, an exploration of the area’s Scouting tradition and much more.

Chicagoly will print nine issues in 2016. The second installment will publish in January and also be inserted in 22nd Century Media’s North Shore titles.
