(SAN FERNANDO, CA) -- The San Fernando Valley Business Journal recently interviewed GlamorGirl publisher Rich Hansen. The interview made up the bulk of an article that ran in the Journal this week on L.A. Erotica, in both their print and online editions of the newspaper. The following is an excerpt:
It's the businesses such as GlamorGirl magazine distributed by Rich Hansen that made up the majority of exhibitors in the convention hall.
Based out of Van Nuys, Hansen packs his publication with event schedules, DVD and- adult reviews, strip club listings and a centerfold "ala Playboy." He distributes his magazine at the Romantix chain of adult- shops and at most strip clubs in Southern California.
Hansen, with his shock of blonde hair and eyes hidden behind dark sunglasses, published a weekly newspaper advertising sex chat lines during the 976 line boom. When that industry fell apart he worked for six years for Vivid Entertainment before embarking on GlamorGirl almost five years ago.
While general circulation print publications suffer from loss of readers and advertising, a niche publication serving the adult industry is a different story. "I really believe this is the age of the free publication," Hansen said. "Everyone's getting their information for free off the Internet already."
