South Florida’s largest magazine publisher expands portfolio with the addition of inWESTON and inDORAL magazines
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (September 9, 2019) – Lifestyle Media Group (LMG), South Florida’s largest and fastest-growing magazine publisher, today announced the acquisition of Larel Media, adding two new publications to the LMG repertoire.

“Acquiring Larel Media is a critical step for the progress of Lifestyle Media Group,” said Gary Press, CEO of Lifestyle Media Group. “I review hundreds of potential acquisitions each year, though we only act on very few. While we added two great publications, the real value was adding a pro like Jeffrey Dinetz to our excellent management team. He is a very smart businessperson who is a born operator. He brings to the table amazing energy, fresh ideas and a keen strategic mind.”
Jeffrey Dinetz joins LMG as President and will spearhead the company’s editorial, advertising, industry events and community relations. “My staff and I have spent the past six years competing against Gary Press and his talented team at Lifestyle Media Group. It is exciting to be putting all of our products; inclusive of print, digital and event marketing, under one roof to better serve our readers, advertisers and employees,” said Dinetz. “I am looking forward to using my integration skills and experience to ensure our companies maximize our present products and to work with Gary on expanding our footprint further in the South Florida area.”
The integration of inWESTON and inDORAL under the Lifestyle banner, will be seamless as their editorial and advertising direction complement one another – seeking to connect people and businesses in South Florida to their respective communities. Each publication does that with a well-curated mix of articles that touch on categories including dining, arts and entertainment, health/wellness, fashion, retail, philanthropy, real estate/development, nightlife, the social scene, as well as investigative stories. Lifestyle distinguishes itself through its stellar writing and storytelling, as well as its creative design and photography and will continue to do so under this new leadership team.
