jet final

Jet magazine, the digest-size publication that has been a staple among African-American readers for 63 years, will release its final print issue on June 9.

The cover of its final issue features a number of its most famous previous covers. Inside, Jet has created a retrospective of the news covered since 1951.

Johnson Publishing announced last month that Jet, with a circulation of more than 700,000, will transition to a digital-only format. Jet’s new app, available for smartphones and tablets, is set to launch June 30.

The third-largest circulation magazine in the African-American market, Jet reduced publication frequency from weekly to roughly every three weeks in recent years. Last summer, Jet went through a major redesign, with more service-oriented stories, bigger photos, more graphics and a new website.

But the changes were not enough to keep the print product cost effective, its publisher said.
