Buzz Media (owners of music and pop culture sites Stereogum, Idolator, Brooklyn Vegan, XLR8R, and KimKardashian.com) has laid off several of the editorial staff at newly acquired Spin Magazine and announced today that there will be no November/December issue.
In a statement to Billboard.biz, a rep for Buzzmedia said “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.”
BuzzMedia Music editor-in-chief Jeff Leeds tweeted late on Sunday: “True fact: we are indeed planning to keep producing a print edition of @spinmagazine, though exact form is TBD. I’m not afraid of new ideas.”
