End Comes for Boston Phoenix, Alternative Voice Since the ’60s
Posted: 3/15/2013 | By: Joseph P. Kahn | The Boston Globe
In a poignant signal of a fast-changing media landscape, The Boston Phoenix sent out a short and simple tweet Thursday afternoon: “Thank you Boston. Good night and good luck.”
With that terse dispatch, the groundbreaking Boston alternative
weekly, which only six months ago reinvented itself from tabloid
newspaper into glossy magazine, put a final punctuation mark on its
47-year history. Its current issue, dated March 15, will be its last.
