by Jason Tomassini | Staff Writer | Friday, June 19, 2009

The magazine industry's struggles have hit a Silver Spring jazz monthly, which has suspended publication and temporarily dismissed staff as it tries to sell its assets amid financial problems.

Jazz Times has been published in Silver Spring for more than 20 years and has a circulation of roughly 100,000.

"The brand and operation will undergo reorganization and restructuring in order to remain competitive in the current media climate," according to a statement on the magazine's Web site. "Print publishing is expected to resume as soon as a sale is closed."
