Print Version Ends :: No Depression
"The latest edition of the alt-country magazine No Depression contains an announcement that it will cease publishing after its next issue, although the Web site will continue to have some new content. While the 13-year-old magazine's simple answer for its shutdown lies infalling ad revenue - "advertising revenue in this issue is 64% of what it was for our March-April issue just two years ago. We expect that number to continue to decline." - its longer answer, perhaps unsurprisingly, involves the music industry's woes, the ever-changingrole of record labels, and the declining number of outlets where the magazine can be sold."
