GLORIA LANE: A Publisher with Purpose and Pride

Anchor-turned-publisher Gloria Lane produces Atlanta Social Season Magazine with amazing aplomb, holding down the dual roles of editor and publisher.

Active in the community, Lane is a member of the
Marietta Rotary Club, served as a founding member of
the Outstanding Young People of Atlanta, a member of Leadership Georgia and the first female president of the Atlanta Press Club. She also got involved with a little thing called the Beastly Feast in its first year. Planning this fundraiser for Zoo Atlanta was an eye-opening experience, Lane said. "We had to beg a barbecue establishment to donate food and arrange to borrow a dance floor and get a band!" With no expense budget, Lane and the other volunteer committee members staged the event with success - and even made some money. Today, the Beastly Feast raises more than $1 million in one night.

Gloria went on to chair other successful events, such as the Humane Society's Pedigreed Affair at the illustrious Piedmont Driving Club and a day-long seminar for AT&T, introducing new products to Atlanta women.

Lane left television to be a stay-at-home mom and, eventually, a magazine publisher. Over the years, she'd grown weary of the negativity embraced by TV news with its mantra, "If it bleeds, it leads." She wanted to report on the positive. In 1981, against the advice of friends and colleagues, she launched Season Magazine to spotlight charitable events, dedicated volunteers and upbeat happenings in Atlanta. The response was so tremendous the magazine went from an annual to a quarterly. Now she has begun Atlanta Social Season, a newly redesigned publication getting back to the heart of Atlantans. "In nearly 25 years, we have never published a negative word," Lane says, "and we never will!"

While the magazine continues to cover Atlanta's social scene, the editorial content includes include profiles, local interviews with Atlanta's top philanthropists, fashion, travel, health & beauty, art, dining and home & design. "We are still keeping with the original mission to showcase Atlantans doing great things for our wonderful city," Lane says. Recently launched to keep news and events up to the minute for readers near and far, GoWithGlo is Gloria's blog designed to bridge the gap between printed issues, Gloria shares everything from party photos to gardening tips to entertainment as well as exclusive interviews and articles in her signature style. She also alerts readers to last minute events and even chances to win a variety of products. You can even follow Gloria on Twitter! So come on, Go With Glo!
