Paste Magazine Shutters Print Publication

Paste magazine, the music and pop culture magazine, will stop its print edition. pastemag.jpgThe website will continue to run, but many members of the magazine staff were let go by the Atlanta-based publication.

This comes a little more than a year after the magazine asked its subscribers to keep the magazine going, which led to more than $250,000 in donations. The money continued operations for a while, but editor-in-chief Josh Jackson told the Associated Press that it only delayed the inevitable.

The announcement to employees came yesterday afternoon. Gawker reports that the employees let go only had two hours to clean up their desk and leave the premises.
