A list of the 20 largest unsecured claims tops more than $3 million, though most of these are listed as disputed. CEO Craig Bednar, who founded Tiger Oak in 1992 with the launch of Minnesota Bride magazine, said operations will carry on as usual while the company attempts to use Chapter 11 protection to restructure its debts and lower costs, and that its portfolio of titles—which also includes Seattle magazine, Seattle Business, Wisconsin Bride and California Wedding Day, among numerous others—will continue to publish both in print and online. “Our intention is to give Tiger Oak Media a fresh start and overcome the financial concerns that have unfortunately persisted for the past couple of years,” said Bednar in a statement the company provided to Folio:. In the statement, the company primarily blamed a decline in print advertising for the delays in past due vendor payments that led to this week's bankruptcy petition, saying the company has...
