‘Spin’ Goes Digital-Only, Music Mags Hit Sour Note – 12/26/2012
It isn’t a very cheery holiday season for the consumer magazine business, with yet another big title closing as the year draws to an end. Music mag Spin announced a few days ago that it will cease publication after 27 years of documenting the alternative, indie, and emerging music scenes.
The magazine, which was recently acquired by Buzz Media, will continue to operate digital properties, including its Web site, Spin.com, Spin Play for iPad and Spin mobile.
Like other music titles, Spin was hit hard by the rapid shift to Internet media consumption, especially among the young adults who typically dominate the audience for music mags.
