Skateboarder Magazine to Close Up Operations

skateboarder magazineThe age of print media is definitely waning. Today publishing corp GrindMedia has announced that Skateboarder Magazine will discontinue both its print and digital platform publishing effective October 15, 2013 following the release of its third digital edition this week. This third digital edition and companion limited edition print version, which will be its final edition.

“Unfortunately market conditions have forced us to have to make the difficult decision to cease publication of Skateboarder,” said Norb Garrett, SVP Group Publisher of GrindMedia. “It’s especially disappointing given the strong interest and initial success we’ve had with the new digitally focused editions; our Skateboarder team has worked incredibly hard producing a cutting-edge product that has been successful at reaching a larger audience online. We will take all of the learnings from Skateboarder’s efforts and apply them to TransWorld Skateboarding and our other brands as the digital model has demonstrated real promise.”

Skateboarder’s editorial staff and publisher will remain on through October to support the release and distribution of the final issue and continue to support the Web site.
