As I blogged about in June Vibe magazine had to shut its doors due to the economy and sales not being enough to keep the magazine going. There was rumor of it becoming an online magazine. Well looks like that is just what's going to happen. Get ready for a re-launching of Vibe Magazine as InterMedia Partners have confirmed their purchase of the defunct company’s assets. “Vibe is the preeminent brand in R&B and Hip-Hop. We feel privileged to purchase and resurrect such a storied brand,” explained David Koff, a Senior Partner at InterMedia Partners. “Together with the re-launch of Soul Train this fall and the rapid expansion of Uptown Magazine, a reinvigorated Vibe enables us to serve a broad spectrum of the African American audience with high quality entertainment and information." With it's already established name recognition the new owners are hoping to bring Vibe back to the success it had in the 90's. Vibe.com is set to officially re-launch in November or December 2009.
