Blender Magazine Is Dead

641757_f260.jpgWe read the obituary on our sister site, Fishbowl NY:

Blender is no more. The music magazine followed so many other publications into the ether amidst a restructuring at parent company Alpha Media Group. It will continue to live online.

“Blender has provided unmatched music coverage and entertainment news in its unique voice to a profoundly dedicated audience of music enthusiasts since 2001. However, given the reality of the current economic climate, we are unable to continue publication,” AMG CEO Stephen Duggan said in a statement. “We are grateful to the sales team and to the tremendously talented editorial staff for their hard work and commitment to Blender.”

In other news at the company, Maxim and Maxim.com are merging their editorial operations. Joy Levy, editor-in-chief of Blender, will take over as EIC, while Maxim Digital EIC Jay Woodruff is the new chief content officer.
