Interview Magazine to Close After Nearly 50-Year Run
Its fifteen minutes are up. The publication, founded by Andy Warhol in 1969, will reportedly liquidate its assets after filing for bankruptcy. Nicknamed “The Crystal Ball of Pop,” the magazine was often unedited and featured famous interviewers as well as interviewees. The Manhattan-based operation has faced multiple unpaid wage claims, including one from former editorial director Fabien Baron, who resigned in April and has since sued for $600,000. In February, employees were reportedly locked out of the magazine’s office after the publisher failed to pay the rent.
