NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — SPIN has finally called it quits on its print publication, devoting more focus to its digital media.
The company posted the following message on its website:
Following the September/October issue, SPIN has halted publication of our print edition to invest more deeply in our digital properties, including SPIN.com, SPIN Play for iPad, and SPIN mobile. SPIN has been a pioneer in music journalism since 1985 and we hope you’ll continue to enjoy our leading editorial, photographic, and multi-media content online. Special arrangements have been made with alternative publishers to fulfill your SPIN print subscription for the remaining term: you will automatically receive your new magazine in the mail, with the option to ask for a full refund. We appreciate your patience during the transition of your subscription.
The publication had a good run with 25 years in readers' hands. SPIN joins Paste, Vibe and Blender as publications beaten by the reliance on modern technology.
