After nearly 28 years, radio and music industry trade publication All Access is shutting down on August 15 due to ‘severe financial headwinds.’
Music and radio industry trade publication All Access has announced it will cease publishing at the end of business on August 15 due to “severe financial headwinds” in a marked decrease in revenues that the company has deemed make moving forward impossible.
“This was not a decision that was reached lightly nor without earnest tries to find a path forward,” the company writes. “It comes on the heels of major changes in the music industry announced in January of this year. These strong financial headwinds also extend to our non-music partners as well. Both downturns have greatly affected how All Access operates. The dollars are just not there to support our operation and staff any longer.”
“This is without question the saddest and most heartbreaking moment of my professional life to have to tell you that ALLACCESS.COM will cease publishing and be going out of business,” said the company’s founder and president/publisher Joel Denver.
“All Access began nearly 28 years ago and with the help of an amazing staff of professionals, the best in the business. We’ve weathered many changes and obstacles in the industry over these years,” Denver continued.
“We’ve carved an incredible path and have taken each part of our operation to amazing levels of success through honesty, hard work, and passion for the radio industry, the music, the artists, and our many readers, marketing partners, clients, and our many contributing editors. Thank you all so much — we could not have done any of this without you.”
“Looking back over nearly three decades of service, we have so much to be proud of. We’ve created amazing editorial and service products that will be benchmarks of our success,” concluded Denver. “Closing All Access doesn’t mean that I am retiring from the business. I will take a moment to catch my breath and focus on new horizons and opportunities.”
Denver closes by adding that he will provide a glowing recommendation for each of the All Access team members, and encourages interested parties to reach out to them on the company’s Team Page.
