'travelgirl magazine' Welcomes Stephanie Abrams, Radio's Leading Travel Expert, to Its Editorial Team, States Publisher and Co-Founder, Renee Werbin

BOSTON, Dec. 16, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Radio show travel expert, Stephanie Abrams, expands her reach from her national presence in broadcasting to print with the January debut of a column in "travelgirl magazine." According to its publisher and co-founder, Renee Werbin, "travelgirl magazine is proud to welcome Stephanie Abrams to our editorial team." Werbin notes that Abrams' vast knowledge of worldwide travel destinations and her wealth of travel experiences will add "depth and insight to our publication. We welcome her wisdom and her expertise. She is one savvy lady and we are delighted to have her input and insights for our readers."

When asked about the focus of her column in "travelgirl magazine," Abrams beams, "My column will extend the reach of my award-winning website, with focus on travel tips, destinations, and travel opportunities that deliver the platinum, rather than the plastic, experience, with valuable tips on staying safe while away from home and will reflect my mission to connect travelers with inspiring, enriching, uplifting and life-enhancing experiences from which "travelgirl" readers will return feeling somehow better than they were when they left home for the journey, whether it was on a business trip or a fun-filled jaunt," Abrams explains. "My focus is on creating special memories out of ordinary moments so that everything from where you have a snack to where you dine, stay and visit, are targeted to provide sensational experiences whose effects become part of a travel treasure chest of memories that are of such quality that each one stays fresh in the mind and becomes part of a crown of travel jewels that grace the individual."

Since its inception in June 2003, travelgirl magazine has consistently created relevant generational lifestyle content using hard to get interviews with people such as Cher, Oleg Casinni, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Carol Alt, Jane Fonda and Lauren Hutton to complement the magazine's unique editorial approach. travelgirl magazine presents engaging travel essays that combine factual destination information with personal perspective and is fresh, exciting, informative and tinted with humor. travelgirl magazine prides itself on being savvy, sexy & sophisticated and addresses the topics readers care about most: health, humor, family, finance, romance, fitness, spirituality and wellness.

Travel advice from celebrities like Cher, Carol Alt and Lauren Hutton is a vital part of the magazine's offerings. "travelgirl magazine is the premier information source for high quality travel, armchair escapes and lifestyle experiences for female consumers who demand travel excellence in exchange for their time and money," Werbin states, "and Stephanie Abrams has a handle on what the sophisticated 'travelgirl' reader is interested in knowing about. We are thrilled to have her on board!"

You can hear Stephanie Abrams weekly, coast-to-coast on, "Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams!" and as a regularly featured radio travel expert guest on "Traveling Feet," plus drive-time radio shows across the country.
