Spin Magazine, the American one that isn't Rolling Stone, has been sold to Buzzmedia, webhome of Stereogum and Hype Machine amongst other things.
Buzzmedia is getting the lot - the print title, the archive and the iPad edition (does an iPad edition really count as a thing in its own right?) - but isn't entirely clear that it this going to be an entry into print media:
“We believe print is important for Spin,” [Buzzmedia Chief Executive Tyler] Goldman said. “As we continue to invest in the platform, we’re going to look at defining what that role is.”This could mean anything from 'further investment in a magazine which has just shaved 100,000 off its guaranteed circulation' to 'allowing the team to still have a printer in the office'. The smart money would be on it being closer to the latter than the former.
