NYT: Rolling Stone, Once a Counterculture Bible, Will Be Put Up for Sale

"And so, after a half-century reign that propelled him into the realm of the rock stars and celebrities who graced his covers, Mr. Wenner is putting his company’s controlling stake in Rolling Stone up for sale, relinquishing his hold on a publication he has led since its founding."

Accorging to the article, Wenner started the magazine from his San Francisco loft in 1967 using $7500 in borrowed money.

Times are changing. I hope

Times are changing. I hope the magazine is able to be successful for years to come. It will be very different without Wenner. I can certainly understand why he wants to sell. Fifty years is a long time to do anything.
