The original Birmingham magazine did not survive the Great Depression. It was re-launched in December 1961 under the auspices of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce. After the chamber merged with other groups into the Birmingham Business Alliance it sought a buyer for the magazine. The News took over effective October 31, 2011.
