Texas Monthly Acquired by Billionaire Oil Heiress Randa Duncan Williams

Less than three years after its acquisition by private equity firm Genesis Park, Texas Monthly is changing hands once again. The Austin-based regional magazine confirmed Tuesday that it's being purchased by billionaire oil heiress Randa Duncan Williams in a deal expected to close on June 30. Financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed (Genesis Park and its founder, Paul Hobby, paid $25 million to acquire the magazine from Emmis Communications in 2016). "I have been an avid Texas Monthly reader since I was a teenager," said Williams, who serves as chairman of Houston-based Enterprise Products, the Fortune 500 oil pipeline company founded by her late father, Dan Duncan, in 1968. "My family is delighted to provide the resources to support this iconic Texas institution, which is nationally recognized for its editorial flair. The journalistic integrity and quality for which Texas Monthly is known will remain unchanged as we build upon what Genesis Park has done over the past two years." Williams will take over as chairman of Texas Monthly, LLC, a newly formed subsidiary of Enterprise Products, upon the sale's completion, which will mark the third ownership change in Texas Monthly's 46-year history. Founder Mike Levy owned it for 25 years before selling, in 1998, to Emmis Communications, which held onto the magazine for 18 years before divesting it and a number of other city and regional mags in late 2016 and early 2017. Genesis Park and Hobby, who took over... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
