Musician Magazine Folds

One music magazine will be missing from newsstands next month: Musician has suspended publication "effective immediately," the magazine's advertising director, Jodie Francisco, said Wednesday (Feb. 10). The long-running monthly magazine, subtitled The Art, Business and Technology of Making Music, covered rock and jazz in a style geared to practicing musicians. It was published by BPI Communications, whose other titles include Billboard. Francisco said the magazine's periodic supplement, Musician's Guide to Touring and Promotion, will continue to be published.
