After yesterday’s news that VIBE magazine is shutting down [click here], Quincy Jones, who launched the magazine in 1993, has expressed interest in buying it back.
“I’m trying to buy my magazine back now,” Jones told EbonyJet.com during a recent telephone interview. “They just messed my magazine all up, but I’m gonna get it back. You better believe it, I’ma take it online because print and all that stuff is over. We gotta get into the 21st century you know. Print and all that stuff is over, we gotta remember that. ‘The Chicago Tribune,’ ‘The Seattle Post Intelligencer,’ ‘The Miami Herald.’ They’re over the same way as the record business. We have got to get into this century.”
