Gator Country Magazine – September ‘11 Issue

Everyone loves a great comeback story, don’t they? How about three or four sandwiched between two high-gloss covers and accompanied by photo galleries and original Gator Sports stories you won’t find anywhere else; not even on!?

Created in a joint venture with local publishing leviathan What’s Happening Publications & Promotions, Inc. is proud to announce the newly relaunched Gator Country Magazine!

“Since 1996, Gator Country has always taken the lead in the world of Florida Gator coverage in all areas and with the relaunch of our magazine, we’re going to break new ground at bringing the best to our fans,” said Raymond Hines, CEO of Gator Country. “I’m very excited about our partnership with WHP because both of us are very passionate at what we do.”

“We are proud to launch our new partnership between What’s Happening Publications and Together we have the resources and expertise to create one of the most exciting publications Gator fans have ever experienced.” said Marc Douglass, CEO of WHP, Inc.

“I love it when a plan comes together.” – Bernadette Carter-King, COO

Due out by the end of August 2011, the magazine will publish twelve issues annually and is unlike any other sports publication on the market today. Not only does Gator Country Magazine report on all Gator Sports but you’ll also find fan profiles, tailgating recipes, Gator trivia, a sports astrology column and…well…we don’t want to give away all our surprises…
