David Atlanta Magazine and the rights to the now defunct Southern Voice newspaper were recently sold to an undisclosed buyer, according to Chip O'Kelley, David's Chief Operating Officer, but business records filed with the Georgia Secretary of State's office shed light on the change in ownership at the magazine.
David R. Thompson is listed as David Magazine LLC.'s CEO and CFO in an update to the company profile that was posted yesterday on the Secretary of State's website.
In a telephone interview yesterday, O'Kelley declined to name the new owner(s) of David Magazine, LLC, saying that the new owners did not want to come forward publicly, but Thompson, when contacted via Facebook, confirmed that he had purchased the magazine.
A request for an interview has not yet been answered.
Thompson, who hails from Warner Robins, owns an alternative bookstore in Warner Robins called “A Touch of Magick” that sells books, jewelry and incense. Thompson is also involved with AdrenalineNightclub in Macon (formerly Club Kaos). Matt Neumann, the former owner and publisher of David Magazine, was also involved with Club Kaos.
An interesting point to note, as of this post, the websites of Southern Voice and David Atlanta are still registered to Brian Sawyer, who has been listed as the head of “operations and finance” for David Magazine in the past. O'Kelley said that Sawyer would not have any involvement in the new David Magazine.
