BEVERLY HILLS (AP) — Geoff Miller, who co-founded Los Angeles magazine and held executive positions there for 34 years, has died. He was 74.

His wife, Kathryn Leigh Scott, tells the Los Angeles Times that Miller died Saturday at his Beverly Hills home from a brain disorder called progressive supranuclear palsy.

Miller helped launch a magazine called the Southern California Prompter in 1960. It was renamed Los Angeles a year later. He was editor-in-chief from 1974 to 1990 and publisher for four years beginning in 1990.

The magazine billed itself as the “Guide to the Good Life in L.A. and Suburbia.” It offered glossy photos, a breezy writing style and an emphasis on fashion, food and celebrities.

It’s still being published.
