NME has closed its print edition after 66 years

The NME ceased its printed publication after 66 years; the weekly music title joined a growing list of once mighty magazines that now only exist online.

Way back in time, before Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or any other social media was ever dreamt of, young people got their musical kicks from a magazine (it was actually more of a newspaper)called the New Musical Express, or NME.
Up until earlier this month, the NME was the must-read magazine for keeping up with the latest exploits of the top bands and vocalists in the music world. Sadly, it’s time is up, the NME is to cease publication in print after 66 years. The weekly music publication will now focus on expanding its digital presence online and through radio.
