Country Living Becomes Sarah Gray's Magazine With Redesign

CL fully becomes editor-in-chief (since October 2008) Sarah Gray Miller's magazine with the May 2009 redesign, but in the if it ain't broke, don't fix it spirit, the monthly's since-September 10, 2001, Come Home to Comfort tagline not only continues, but Miller also gives Comfort added importance by putting it above the logo on the cover, after its 71/2-year appearance on the monthly's spine.

"I fully respect the work of [1998-2008 predecessor] Nancy Soriano and [1978-1998 founder] Rachel Newman, and their advice has been invaluable," says Miller. "Comfort was the idea of Nancy and [since August 2000 vp/publisher] Steve Grune, and there was nothing better in my mind that represents the magazine. Besides, just as Comfort sent a wonderful message in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attacks, so, too, is the message in this difficult economy."
