We have just discovered that VIBE Magazine, which officially closed its doors on June 30th, has officially been resurrected. It seems that a group of investors named Intermedia Partners, a New York-based media industry private equity fund and its property, Uptown Media has put together a plan to bring the urban hip hop magazine back to the news stands.
First, we hear VIBE will initially relaunch on Vibe.com with the print edition appearing by the end of the year, followed by quarterly- or four times a year beginning in 2010.
Vibe's new leadership will include original Vibe team members Robert Miller and Leonard Burnett; Uptown Magazine Co-Founder Brett Wright and Blackrock Digital Partners Chris Smith and Parker McNaughton.
An important item to note is that despite Quincy Jones stating that he wanted to save the magazine, he is not involved in the new purchase.
