From JET Magazine,
JET magazine will release its final print issue, hitting newsstands nationwide today Monday, June 9.
The cover of the last issue salutes JET magazine’s iconic history with images of previous covers throughout the past 63 years. Inside, readers will find a retrospective of the news covered in the magazine dating from 1951 to the present.
JET is launching a new weekly digital magazine app later this month. The new app, scheduled to launch June 30, will be available on all tablet devices and mobile platforms. It will feature weekly updates on entertainment, sports and news of importance to our readership, as well as enhanced functionality for the Beauty of the Week. June 30 is JET App Day.
JET magazine, initially billed as “The Weekly Negro News Magazine,” is noted for its role in chronicling the early days of the Civil Rights movement. The publication is now transitioning into an all-digital format. The new weekly digital magazine app will leverage a variety of storytelling tactics, including video interviews, enhanced digital maps, 3D charts and photography from the JPC archives. The magazine has been a trusted news source to Black Americans since 1951, bringing life to its popular catchphrase: “If it isn’t in JET, it didn’t happen.”
WOW! It’s the end of an era.
