JET magazine will no longer be available on your newsstands.
The African-American magazine will no longer publish a regular print edition.
Jet was everywhere — barbershops, salons, waiting rooms. It was as if John H. Johnson, the magazine’s publisher, had decided to gift any black person born before 1975 with a subscription on the occasion of his or her 18th birthday, and folks just never got around to canceling it.
Johnson Publishing, the parent company of JET, will move the magazine to digital format beginning in June. The magazine will be delivered through its website and a paid subscription app.
Now, there will only be an annual “Best of JET” print issue.
JET has the third-largest circulation in the African-American magazine market with 700,000.
