Sister 2 Sister Magazine Files For Bankruptcy
Nationwide -- Sister 2 Sister magazine has unfortunately fallen victim to difficult times as print media outlets are being forced to shift to digital. The magazine, founded by publisher Jamie Foster Brown, focuses on content for and about African American women. Reportedly, it's print edition has been placed on hiatus, but their web site at S2Smagazine.com will continue to be updated.
A long history and wide circulation
Founded in 1988 and based in Washington, DC, Sister 2 Sister magazine is well-known nationwide and up until now had been available in most major newstands and grocery stores. Founder Jamie Foster Brown started out as an advertising secretary for BET, and went on to start the magazine and become a 22-year publishing veteran. Her husband, Lorenzo Brown, serves as managing editor.
Signs of trouble
Her magazine, however, started showing signs of trouble when customers stopped receiving their subscriptions and the company's 800 customer support number was reportedly disconnected.
But other Black magazines have also been affected. Most notably, Jet Magazine recently ended it print edition and went all digital. Vibe Magazine is also planning to do the same, and XXL also announced that they are planning to reduce their frequency from bi-monthly to just quarterly.
