JET Magazine Says Bye-Bye; Shutting Down Print & Moving To Digital Format
After 63 years of weekly publications, Johnson Publishing Company is pulling the plug on the print format of JET magazine. The company will switch to digital format at the end of June, and the weekly publication of JET will move online to a new format. The company shared this statement in the following press release:
Almost 63 years ago, my father, John Johnson, named the publication JET because, as he said in the first issue, ‘In the world today, everything is moving faster. There is more news and far less time to read it. He could not have spoken more relevant words today. We are not saying goodbye to JET, we are embracing the future as my father did in 1951 and taking it to the next level.
Wow…I always thought the magazine was named JET as in “jet black”. Although I spend most of my time reading blogs these days, I will miss my little time with JET at the beauty salon.
