Life Magazine is dead ... again
In less than a month, Life Magazine will die its third death. With ad revenue down, Time Inc. has decided to pull the plug on the venerated publication that was as much a part of American households in the middle of the last century as the Saturday Evening Post and TV.
After April 20, Life will only be available on the Web, Time said yesterday.
Hmmm, that line seems eerily prophetic for many media in this day and age: "Life will only be available on the Web."
