Paste is a monthly music and entertainment digital magazine, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia,[1] with studios in Atlanta and Manhattan,[2] and owned by Paste Media Group. The magazine began as a website in 1998. It ran as a print publication from 2002 to 2010 before converting to online-only.[3]

History

The magazine was founded[4] as a quarterly in July 2002 and was owned[5] by Josh Jackson,[6] Nick Purdy,[7] and Tim Regan-Porter.[8]

In October 2007, the magazine tried the "Radiohead" experiment, offering new and current subscribers the ability to pay what they wanted for a one-year subscription to Paste.[9][3] The subscriber base increased by 28,000, but Paste president Tim Regan-Porter noted the model was not sustainable; he hoped the new subscribers would renew the following year at the current rates and the increase in web traffic would attract additional subscribers and advertisers.[10]

Amidst an economic downturn, Paste began to suffer from lagging ad revenue,[11] as did other magazine publishers in 2008 and 2009.[3] On May 14, 2009, Paste editors announced a plan to save the magazine, by pleading to its readers, musicians and celebrities for contributions.[12] Cost-cutting by the magazine did not stem the losses.[13] The crux cited for the financial troubles was the lack of advertiser spending.[3]

In 2009, Paste launched an hour-long TV pilot for Halogen TV called Pop Goes the Culture.[14]

On August 31, 2010, Paste suspended the print magazine, but continues publication as the online PasteMagazine.com.[3][15]

Content

Its tagline is "Signs of Life in Music, Film and Culture".[16] Paste's initial focus was music, covering a variety of genres with an emphasis on adult album alternative, Americana and indie rock, along with independent film and books. Each issue originally included a CD music sampler but was dropped in favor of digital downloading as a Going-Green initiative. Featured artists included Paul McCartney, Ryan Adams, Blackalicious, Regina Spektor, The Whigs, Fiona Apple, The Decemberists, Mark Heard, Woven Hand, Milton and the Devils Party,[17][failed verification] Liam Finn, The Trolleyvox, and Thom Yorke. Many of these artists also contributed to the Campaign to Save Paste.[18][failed verification]
