More predictable news from the world of free local magazines, with these two articles from Media Bulletin:

  • Rise, the leisure and lifestyle magazine for south London, has closed.
  • Archant Life has suspended publication of Staffordshire County until further notice.

It’s because there are two in one day that I’ve done the cut ‘n’ paste here – there’s been a steady drip of closures of these things this year all across the country. And why not? – no one would ever pay for these redundant bits of dead tree and no one ever actually read them, ergo they’re not going to be missed.
