We recommend you head over to the main mediabistro.com web site for an exclusive investigative report into OverTime magazine. The magazine, founded by former NFL player Ryan McNeil, owes considerably more than $100,000 to former freelancers, writers and vendors. Our very own Noah Davis uncovered a series of legal actions, missteps and even alleged threats sent by magazine management to unpaid freelancers.
If you work as a freelancer in the magazine industry, you owe it to yourself to read this.
And, funnily enough, we’ve got another story in the pipeline about another publication that owes freelancers significant sums. It’s one we’ve written quite a bit about lately, too… Stay tuned for that one.
