Don’t Blame the Mail Service: Spin Magazine November/December Canceled


Spin magazine's new owner Buzzmedia put the kibosh on the nearly 30-year-0ld bimonthly music rag's November/December issue. The online media company that owns multiple properties, including Stereogum and Idolator, said in a statement: “Buzzmedia and Spin are committed to moving forward with print, but we are still determining exactly how print fits in with Spin’s multiple distribution points and growth initiatives." Also, about a third of the company's staff — eleven employees — got pink slips on Friday, including the print magazine's editor-in-chief. Perhaps Friday was also the day the music magazine's print existence died.
