KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A new Kansas City-based ownership group has bought alternative magazine The Pitch.

KCUR reports Carey Media LLC closed the deal on Dec. 31 to buy the magazine from Tennessee-based SouthComm, which bought The Pitch in 2011.

The new owners, Stephanie and Adam Carey, say they plan to keep the magazine focused on Kansas City. It is the first time in nearly 20 years that the magazine has been owned and operated locally.

Long-time reporter David Hudnall has been named the magazine’s new editor.

Last year, The Pitch moved from a weekly publication to a monthly.
