We’ve mentioned in the past how Paste, the indie music magazine, has managed to stay afloat during a tough year of recession by employing some unconventional means. The founders gathered musicians to put together a benefit album (a tactic they also used recently for the magazine’s Songs For Haiti charity), allowed readers to pick a sliding scale of payment, and solicited donations for their publication.
Now it looks like Paste may finally be back in the black with two new hires of assistant editors: Rachel Dovey will be joining the team editing music reviews after a West Coast internship at Wired, and former Paste intern Michael Saba will be now be editing the film and TV sections of the magazine.
Both new editors have relocated to join the Paste team in Atlanta. We’re rooting that the publication continues its stream of ingenuity and good business sense.
