The Daily’s Coming to the Hamptons!
(NEW YORK) Prepare yourselves for the hautest summer on record: The Daily is coming to the Hamptons. The Daily Front Row's editor-in-chief Brandusa Niro and Tom Allon, CEO of Manhattan Media (publishers of Hamptons' Dan’s Papers) announced today that they will be partnering on a new upscale, glossy, fashion and lifestyle weekly in the Hamptons to launch Memorial Day weekend, entitled The Daily Dan—the Chic Sheet of New York's posh summer playground.
The Daily Front Row has long been required reading for trendsetters and influencers at New York's Fashion Week and at other fashion events worldwide. Its journalistic style blends fun and fashion with an addictive effect—the readers invariably ask for more. Dan's Papers is The Daily's uncle in the country, equally irreverent, cherished by its community and an integral part of the Hamptons' experience.
"Forget everything you've ever known or read about the Hamptons," said Brandusa Niro. "The Daily Dan is here to inform and enchant the East End cognoscenti with weekly chic reports and The Daily's signature hilarity from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Think of all the fun you'll have consuming this zero-calorie dish at the beach!"
With a coverage mandate that takes readers from a runway moment at Donna Karan's Urban Zen boutique to a runaway vache wreaking havoc on Calvin Klein's Meadow Lane lawn, The Daily Dan's cheeky-chic elixir captures the locals and the summer set with equal zeal. Distributed every Thursday at newsstands, restaurants, shops and transportation epicenters around the Hamptons, this new weekly delivers the essential buzz on whatever is rocking your world that weekend.
"So, I go fishin' in Antibes for a month and what do I get when I come back? These crazy Daily kids on iPads and digicams, taking over the office, and the town!" said Dan Rattiner, founder and editor-in-chief of Dan's Papers. "Sassy coverage of celebrities, fashion icons, trendsetters? Kate Moss?? Not the spirit in which I started Dan's 51 years ago. Here's the secret—and don't you tell them: This will be a lot of fun!"
Twelve issues of The Daily Dan will be published on a schedule from Memorial to Labor Day. Regular features will include The Fix, a scintillating mix of news and gossip, profiles of chic Hamptonites and their homes, coverage of the bustling party scene, and of course, checking in with the Gran on the Street.
