Niche Media LLC publishes some of the nation's most luxurious magazines targeted to the rich and famous in their regional cities.

The company's flagship magazines include Gotham in New York City, Hamptons for the east end of Long Island, Los Angeles Confidential for LA and Ocean Drive in Miami. Other magazines include Art Basel for Miami Beach, Aspen Peak for the ski resort area of Colorado, Boston Common for the Boston area, Philadelphia Style for the Philadelphia area, Michigan Avenue for Detroit and Capitol File for Washington DC.

The company is also responsible for the sales and marketing of VEGAS and WYNN magazines in Las Vegas.

All of the magazines are known for their large size (10 x12 inches), full-color glossy pages and celebrity covers. The magazines are usually mailed free to high-income individuals, in hotel rooms and also available on sale at newsstands. The company is known for its glamourous parties catering to celebrities, the wealthy and advertisers.

Gotham magazine is published 10 times a year while Hamptons is published weekly during the summer season. Los Angeles Confidential is published 8 times per year and the other magazines are less frequent.

The company says a majority of Niche Media readers maintain at least $250,000 annual household incomes, own homes valued at more than $1 million, and have liquid assets in excess of $1 million.

Niche Media merged with Greenspun Media Group and Ocean Drive Media Group in 2007. The company reportedly restructured and laid off an undetermined number of employees in 2008. Greenspun Media Group of Las Vegas is the owner of Niche Media.


Jason Binn, CEO, founded Niche Media in 1998. Since its inception, Binn has successfully built an empire that has cornered the regional publishing market with the country's preeminent titles including Aspen Peak, Gotham, Hamptons, Los Angeles Confidential, and launching in September 2005, Boston Common and Capitol File. Binn is also a co-founder (with Jerry Powers) of Ocean Drive magazine in Miami. Ocean Drive is published by Sobe News, Inc., which is managed by Jerry Powers and of which Jason Binn is a shareholder. SoBe also has a joint venture with GreenSpun Media to publish Vegas magazine.

Binn began his foray into publishing in 1993. With the foresight to enter the burgeoning Miami market, Jason Binn launched Ocean Drive with partner, Jerry Powers, on a shoestring budget with only eighty pages. The magazine quickly became a media sensation and today has worldwide distribution, often maxing out at over four hundred pages.

Following that, Binn parlayed his success in another niche market where he began publishing the then twenty-year-old Hamptons magazine (1998.) Mirroring the success of Ocean Drive, Binn recreated the magazine to reflect the mindset of New York's jet setters, boosting ad revenues and book sizes to an average of 200 pages weekly during the 16 week summer season. Hamptons served as the springboard for Binn's Gotham magazine (2001) which has lived up to its incredible expectations, allowing Binn to lay claim to other coveted markets, Los Angeles with Los Angeles Confidential (2002), Aspen with Aspen Peak (2004), Boston with Boston Common (2005) and Washington DC with Capitol File (2005).
