A short history of the magazine written for it's media kit

In 1983 when 'multimedia' meant a group of reporters, COMPUTER CLASSIFIEDS was created as a means of bringing local computer buyers and sellers together. Over 20,000 copies were distributed in Northern California, beginning a trend that continues to this day.

In 1984, editorial was added to the mix and the renamed COMPUTER CURRENTS was born. Since then, circulation has grown to 92,000. In 1986, the Southern California and Boston regional editions were added, with satellite offices in those areas. These editions proved to be so successful that the idea of franchising the COMPUTER CURRENTS name, its editorial content and our reputation became an economically, viable option.

The first franchised region was Atlanta, which began publishing in 1987. Dallas/Ft. Worth and Houston followed in 1988 and Chicago started with a bang in 1993. This currently gives COMPUTER CURRENTS a national circulation of almost 500,000, making us the largest and most widely-read regional computer publication in the country!

COMPUTER CURRENTS has received numerous awards for writing and design which put us on par with the glossiest of national computer magazines. This dedication to quality makes our readers responsive to your advertising.
