A publicist comments on my post about BPM magazine's demise, stating that the brand will continue as an online endeavor. "It no longer made sense to publish a magazine when blogs were scooping us on every story," the publicist states. (So sorry. BPM had employed my services, but I assume I was too much of an expense).
The rep also states that indie hip-hop sister mag Vapors (above) will survive as a quarterly.
