Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

The great magazine die-off claimed another victim yesterday: Vibe, one of the largest mags covering hip-hop and R&B. But Quincy Jones, who founded the magazine in 1993, is looking to step back in and make the periodical a fully online venture. In his reasoning, he dissed some of America's most troubled dailies. 

"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," Jones said to Reuters. 

Well, the folks at the Herald might be surprised to hear they're officially "over," but if Quincy Jones says it, it must be true. 

By the by, we haven't heard anything about an impending Herald sell-off or demise in a while. Maybe no news is good news for those who'd still like to see printed daily news.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
