Long Island Parent magazine has been sold to Manhattan-based Davler Media Group.
The magazine will combine with Davler Media's local parenting magazines -- Suffolk Parent and Nassau Parent -- to form one magazine, said Liza N. Burby, founder and publisher of Long Island Parent. She declined to disclose the purchase price.
The new magazine will be called Long Island Parent and will be published in two editions every month, one for Nassau County and one for Suffolk. The changes take effect in October; Long Island Parent's August-September issue is on stands now.
Burby founded Long Island Parent in 2009 when Newsday stopped publishing its Parents & Children magazine. Burby had worked as a contractor for Newsday to edit Parents & Children.
She will continue to work on Long Island Parent for the next year and a half as she takes on a senior publishing role at Davler Media. "I'm still involved in making sure Long Island parenting issues are being covered," she said.
Burby, who is based in Huntington, said no employees will be affected because writers worked for the magazine on a contract basis.
Long Island Parent is free and has a bimonthly circulation of 65,000. The new, combined magazine is expected to have a circulation of 100,000 monthly. It will also be free.
