Print edition of NME to close after 66 years

Print edition of NME to close after 66 years
After 66 years of weekly issues, the NME is closing it’s print edition to become almost entirely digital. Almost, because special editions will continue, but online is the focus for now.
In a sense, the old NME died in 2015 when it became a free magazine with a focus on much wider issues than the music which had once seen it as essential read for fans of alternative music, and in recent General Election campaigns it was purely a vehicle for the Labour party. 
If you want an alternative print source, Q is doing decent work.
