It’s an unfortunate reality of the journalism and publishing business that magazines don’t succeed. And that sometimes they are given up for dead by the media conglomerates that own them. And so goes the fate of Sync. About twenty of the magazine’s employee’s will be laid off or transferred to other areas of the Ziff Davis Media parent company, according to a New York Times article. The editor I’ve work with over there sent out an email stating that December 3rd is his last day and that the December/January issue will be the final hurrah for the magazine.
Best of luck to all the great staffers of Sync.
