Vibe Magazine Sold !

Vibe magazine Sold
 New York Times:
SpinMedia, a group of music and pop culture Web sites that includes Spin magazine, has bought Vibe, the 21-year-old R&B and hip-hop magazine.

SpinMedia announced the sale on Thursday, saying that it had bought the rights to Vibe's print magazine as well as to its related sites, and, from Vibe Media. The price was not disclosed.

The sale reunites the two publications, which more than a decade ago were part of the same company, Vibe/Spin Ventures, before each title went through a series of sales.
Usually, when a new company takes over they like to add their unique imprint. I think we could be see some changes to the Vibe Magazine once the new management is in place fully. Maybe they can improve upon the magazine. Hopefully, they will maintain the direction of the publication and just improve the quality of the articles and hopefully figure out away to sell the magazine without a gazillion ads. Time will tell. Do you think that Vibe will look differently as far as it's content and appearance?
