New York Magazine announced last night that, as of March 2014, the print edition will only be published on a biweekly basis. Milos Balac at the Huffington Post wrote, “Nooooo.” Pamela Paul at the New York Times shared the sentiment: “Oh, no! No, no, no, no, no.”  Jessica Goldstein at the Washington Post wondered: “But what will become of the @nymag Approval Matrix?” Alex Rees at Cosmopolitan.com saw the bright side: “So exciiiiited to hear that @thecut will be getting more of a print presence in the new biweekly @nymag.” Scott Bixby at Bloomberg Businessweek crunched some numbers: “My math may be fuzzy, but 20% more content per issue after going biweekly means a 30% drop in overall content, right?”

For more details on the change, read David Carr’s story about the cutback in the New York Times: Long on Cutting Edge of Print, New York Magazine Cuts Back. Simon Carswell at Irish Times called it a, “Sign (sigh) of the times.” Amy Virshup there wrote, “As a NYMag alum, I can't help but feel saddened by news it's going biweekly.” Mandi Woodruff at Yahoo! News wrote, “Sad times are upon us. Looked fwd to @nymag every week.” Carl Swanson at New York Magazine explained, “We've been bi(weekly)-curious for a while, and it'll be a better magazine for how people actually read us.”
