January 16, 2008 at 2:16 PM (PT)
SALEM COMMUNICATIONS announced today that the APRIL 2008 issue of CCM MAGAZINE will be the final printed version of the magazine. CCM MAGAZINE has been the flagship publication of the Contemporary Christian music industry for over 30 years.
"CCM MAGAZINE readers tell us they want more information and want it faster than can be delivered in a monthly printed magazine. Accordingly, we will discontinue the printed version of CCM MAGAZINE to put increased energies toward the continued growth and enhancement of our comprehensive Christian music and entertainment online network featuring CCMMAGAZINE.COM, CHRISTIANMUSICPLANET.COM, CMCENTRAL.COM and MYCCM.ORG," said SALEM COMMUNICATIONS Pres./Non-Broadcast Media and Publisher/CCM MAGAZINE JIM CUMBEE.
The decision to discontinue the printed version of CCM MAGAZINE does not affect SALEM PUBLISHING's other magazines -- PREACHING MAGAZINE, YOUTHWORKER JOURNAL, HOMECOMING MAGAZINE, THE SINGING NEWS MAGAZINE and FAITH TALK MAGAZINE.
