I spend a lot of time in conversation with our sales manager Duane Torrence. We banter about everything from politics to style. Whenever I want a male perspective, between the hours of 9 to 5, Monday through Friday, he’s my go-to. So, it’s an exciting time around the majority-female offices of Atlanta Tribune: The Magazine. We’ve never done an entire issue solely dedicated to our male audience; so we’ve scored major points with our colleagues of the opposite gender. And even though this issue — themed The Gentlemen’s Suite — isn’t for us, we certainly have enjoyed its coming together and want to make sure the men in our lives have a copy.

Associate Editor Kamille Whittaker got the scoop. pg. 26
