INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - After 2017 ended and signed in 2018, Indonesian music fans got a farewell from one of the magazines that became the reference for music information, Rolling Stone. Not a farewell gift in 2017 but a farewell greeting because it is not published in Indonesia.

"On this day PT a & e Media as publisher of Rolling Stone Indonesia magazine and Rolling Stone Indonesia website announced that starting January 1, 2018 we do not hold the license of Rolling Stone Indonesia magazine and Rolling Stone Indonesia website to operate in the territory of Indonesia," the announcement on the rollingstone page .co.uk.

Eddie Soebari, Chairman of Eddie Soebari, confirmed the closing of a US music magazine, which has been published since 2005. "Effective as of January 1, 2018, the magazine publishing license and the Rolling Stone Indonesia website, which we originally owned under PT a & e Media, to our principal, Rolling Stone based in the United States and Rolling Stone International," Eddia said via electronic message.

This announcement came out after a few names that nurtured the music magazine, announcing the breakup through social media.

Music observer who has been the Editor in Chief of Rolling Stone Indonesia, Adib Hidayat, announced on Twitter he no longer wrote in the magazine. "December 29, 2017 became my last day working in Rolling Stone Indonesia. Thank you to all those who have helped us for more than 12 years," said @AdibHidayat.

Rolling Stone is not the only magazine that say goodbye in 2017, mid-year, Hai magazine is no longer published, however, switching to platforms within the network.

Rolling Stone Indonesia is responding to the rapidly changing domestic media industry, by no longer adopting licenses from US publications, both for print and online versions. "The rapidly changing media industry is causing lethargy on the side of the business as a whole. This change is affecting 'infrastructure' in the media industry," said Eddie.

He emphasized that the move is the best choice in dealing with the changing industries that are happening today
