Buzzmedia Folds Spin

The print version of Spin is done. We knew it was coming as soon as Buzzmedia bought it, but it still sucks to get the official word. The September/October issue will now forever be known as the title’s last issue ever.

Here is the statement from Spin:

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.

Those “special arrangements?” Sending Spin subscribers issues of Car and Driver instead. Ugh. What a shitty way for such an iconic magazine to go out.
