WHAT OUR READERS SAY

  • "Just wanted to let you know I got a call from a new client who called directly because of my YAM ad! Total house reno & decor in Broadmead ... Thank you, YAM."

    YAM advertiser

  • "I was meaning to write you for quite a while … I liked how the articles evolved from more serious to the lighter side of life — I thoroughly enjoyed the workout article, the article on dancing, and the food article. I must say that was the first time I read about 80% of the featured articles in a single magazine. Bravo."

    YAM reader

  • "Fan-tastic! I absolutely love the direction that this local mag has progressed into. Great articles, clear sharp images, easy to read and/or come back to with either intent on learning something new… It has it all."

    YAM reader and advertiser

  • “Just finished reading YAM. Best issue yet! And the visuals are amazing; the photo of Jerson Hernandez and Style Watch on the next Page was incredible. Congratulations on making a very good magazine so much better! I have had to rip out 4 pages and put them on my fridge to remind me to buy, or cook things.”
