Trump Folds: Remnants of Ocean Drive Empire Continues to Crumble

When Niche media merged with local luxury porn mag Ocean Drive a few years ago, it also got a few stepchildren like Florida Inside/Out, Ocean Drive en Espanol, and Trump Magazine.

Inside/Out was folded into Ocean Drive during a company wide shake up last fall. Multiple sources report that Ocean Drive en Espnol's last issue printed in March. Atlanta Peach, another Ocean Drive title, was shuttered in December. Now Trump magazine has officially joined the magazine graveyard.

Started in 2007 as a joint venture between Donald Trump and Ocean Drive Media Group (right before merging with Niche), Trump was a luxury quarterly that was distributed in various Trump owned properties as well as newsstands with a circulation over 100,000.

The only titles that were part of the Ocean Drive Media Group still left on the Niche Media website at this point include Ocean Drive, Vegas, and specialty magazines like Art Basel Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, and Wynn.
