Spin‘s Obligatory ‘We Got Sold’ Meeting?

spin_beck.jpgTracking Spin‘s pending sale today. Editor-in-chief Sia Michel’s out. Andy Pemberton’s in. Meanwhile, we’ve been trying to get insight from some current Spin staffers on the whole thing, but, as you can imagine, they have things other than FishbowlNY on their minds. We’re left with a lone eyewitness account of an alleged staff meeting:

There was just a big staff meeting here at Spin and some folks came out of the corner office looking, well, not so happy. One girl was in tears.

That sucks, particularly when the girl’s Courtney Love, and she doesn’t even work there.
