Radio & Records, the Industry’s Leading Newspaper, Goes Out of Business!

Radio & Records Goes Out of Business This Friday!

ALL ACCESS has confirmed that venerable trade publication R&R will close its doors, after 36 years, on FRIDAY (6/5), which will mark the final issue.

The R&R site has already been pulled down. Up to 40 employees are exiting, some sooner than later. Most of the chart information will be included in future editions of BILLBOARD.

ALL ACCESS spoke to R&R Editorial Dir./Associate Publisher CYNDEE MAXWELL, who said, “Everyone on this team has worked extremely hard to fulfill the vision of RADIO & RECORDS, and everyone can hold their heads high on this very sad day. We had a highly talented group of people who always worked hard and gave it their best — especially in the recent past. I deeply regret that this day has come. The good news for some other companies out there is that we have many fantastic people who are now available to put their excellent talents, abilities and skills to work for someone else.”

R&R Founder BOB WILSON told ALL ACCESS: “It’s a sad day and the industry has changed. It was, at one time the information leader in the industry, and when we started it 1973, it was revolutionary for its time.”

ALL ACCESS President/Publisher JOEL DENVER added, “I spent 14 great years at R&R, so it’s a bittersweet day to see this happen. I truly wish nothing but the best for so many of my talented R&R friends who are losing their jobs, today.”
