Hip-hop lifestyle magazine Vibe is the 10th major publication in just the last six months to cease printing. (Four of those plan to soldier on in the online-only format.) January was the high-water mark for shutdowns, with four. Below is a list of the magazines that turned off the printing presses this year, along with decline (in a couple of cases, it actually rose) in ad pages for 2008 for each, according to the Publishers Information Bureau.
