Figures I get the last issue sent to me for free (for some reason) and the magazine goes under. The same thing can be said when I interview bands, they break up after that.
Alpha Media Group announced that the latest issue (which features Kelly Clarkson) will be the last issue to go to production. Jobs will be eliminated, and some employees will be working over at Maxim instead. The CEO blamed the financial crisis for the downfall of the magazine, but the magazine has seen a decrease in subscriptions and readership for awhile now.
