Not a VIBE-rant Day- Quincy's Magazine is Closing


Sigh... and another one bites the dust, and this time, I'm feeling bitter. According to Daily Finance: "Vibe magazine, the urban-music magazine founded in 1993 by Quincy Jones, is the latest victim of the media recession. Multiple sources both within and outside the magazine confirmed that it is shutting down." I spent six months at the mag in 2004 as an intern, and the following year, I did a few stories for the website, so this magazine's closing is personal. Sigh... I'll always have the memories. And some great back issues.
