In 1998, Lipford was reached by Today's Homeowner magazine to partner for a nationally syndicated program. The program premiered in June 1998 as Today's Homeowner with Danny Lipford. Soon after, the program was syndicated to over 100 television markets. [4] [5] In 2001, AOL Time Warner bought the Times Mirror magazine group and discontinued the magazine.
