Spin Cuts 11, Drops Nov/Dec Issue

The changes we anticipated coming to Spin have come big and fast, as new owner Buzzmedia cut 11 staffers and said it was dropping the November/December issue. The New York Times reports that Steve Kandell, Spin’s editor-in-chief and Catherine Davis, its managing editor, were among those let go.

The next issue of Spin will be its September/October issue; it will be available in late August.

According to a statement from Buzzmedia, it remains “committed to moving forward with print,” but this can hardly be seen as anything other than a move toward dropping the magazine altogether.
