Vibe Magazine Latest to Close

You can now add Vibe to the long, sad list of magazines killed by the recession. The hip-hop magazine founded by legendary music producer Quincy Jones (the man behind Michael Jackson's Thriller success) in 1993 couldn't survive continued losses even after recent cutbacks. Wicks Group, the magazine's owner since 2006, had cut circulation, salaries, and its publishing schedule.
