What is the best CMS for a Magazine website?

Good morning,
We currently have our websites in the CMS Kentico:
http://www.kentico.com/

But since we have 4 websites and only 1 developer on staff it is extremely difficult to get everything we need done... done.

So we are looking into more widely used CMS systems that have more already created plugins for us to use and a bigger (and cheaper) pool of developers if we need help creating something custom.

We are a Magazine website (we have 4 but you can see one at):
www.sarasotamagazine.com.

What are your opinions about the best CMS to use for a Magazine website?
Currently I am looking into Joomla and Wordpress.
Are one of those the best, or is there other options I should also be researching?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The other side of that coin is while panagiotiss thinks Joomla is user friendly, the community at large clearly prefers WordPress.  It's the dominant CMS platform at this time.  WordPress also has the largest developer and theme developer communities of all the programs.

Is there an "easy" way to migrate from Kentico (which is a .net/sql based CMS) into Wordpress?

Or do you know of any companies (or developers like yourselves) that do that kind of migration?

the easiest way is to do it again :)

I'm not familiar with the structure of Kentico or if it will export into a format that WordPress can suck in but if the content is in SQL, it can be migrated given enough time and effort and a clever developer.  

Others have done it (http://www.wideopen.net/wide-open-news/from-kentico-to-wordpress/) so maybe contact them and ask them what they did?
