Spin Halts Print Publication

The presses have stopped for Spin.

The music magazine, which has been around since 1985, recently announced it’s halted production of its print edition but will continue to publish online as the company invests more deeply in its digital properties.

“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,” the mag said in a statement.

So, just what is the consolation magazine that Spin subscribers will be receiving in the mail? Car and Driver, apparently.

In a recent notice to subscribers, Car and Driver explained “I know we can’t replace the insight and passion that Spin delivered to new-music lovers, but we can promise that Car and Driver will provide that same insight and passion for cars.” Refunds are also available.
