About SLAM Magazine

Slam logo

SLAM Magazine is an American basketball magazine in circulation since 1994, published by Slam Media Inc.

SLAM was launched in 1994 as a basketball magazine that combined the sport with hip hop culture at a time when the genre was becoming increasingly popular. It was founded by publisher Dennis Page at Harris Publications, and he hired Cory Johnson to be the first Editor in Chief. Its first issue had a cover story on Larry Johnson of the Charlotte Hornets (written by future Fortune editor Andrew Serwer) and a feature on University of California freshman Jason Kidd. Many of the magazine's lasting features, such as "In Your Face", "Slam-a-da-month", and "Last Shot" all began with the first issue.
