Web Review to fold; blames ad revenue

Published on .

Songline Studios on Friday published what it said was the last issue of its Web zine Web Review, unless it can convince readers to kick in a subscription fee.

In a letter posted on its site, Web Review Publisher Dale Dougherty wrote that "the advertiser-supported model isn't really covering costs for targeted publications, and Web Review--whcih requires a dedicated staff of editorial, design, production and technical resources--is expensive to produce."

The letter goes on to ask readers to pay $19.95 for six-month subscriptions to make up for its revenue shortfalls and sustain production costs.
