"Blender_mag_4_09 MUSIC NEWS - Today, the staff at Blender were informed that the magazine was the newest causality of the world economic crisis, thanks to lower magazine sales, declining subscriptions and fewer ad pages.

Around since 2001, ' Blender has provided unmatched music coverage and entertainment news in its unique voice to a profoundly dedicated audience of music enthusiasts,' Alpha Media Group CEO Stephen Duggan said in a company memo, reports Advertising Age."
