XXL Ends Print Edition Of Magazine After 17 Years

After almost two decades, XXL magazine will be no longer be releasing print editions following their upcoming October/November issue, and will instead be going digital-only.

The moves comes as the publication has been bought by Townsquare Media, according to the New York Post. The focus will now shift from print to newer forms of media and revenue streams.



“We think XXL has strong potential in both the digital and live events market,” Bill Wilson, the chief content officer of Townsquare, told the Post. The company operates 331 radio stations, as well as a number of websites.
