'Interview' Magazine Shutting Down After Nearly 50 Years

A publication created by Andy Warhol almost 50 years ago, "Interview" magazine, has folded amid legal disputes with former staffers who allege the company owes them hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation. "I am saddened and surprised by the news that Brant Publications has chosen to shutter the cultural icon that Interview has been since its founding by Andy Warhol", he wrote. In 2008, the publication went through another shift when co-editorial directors Fabien Baron and Glenn O'Brien took over.
Interview was founded by Warhol in 1969, and was bought by the billionaire Peter Brant from the late pop artist's estate in 1989.
Interview magazine is no more. Templer was previously accused by an anonymous woman in the Spotlight investigation of overstepping professional boundaries, a charge he vehemently denied the claims, saying: "I deny these vague and anonymous allegations".
Baron resigned from the publication last month after working there for more than 10 years.
Baron and Poiblanc are just two of those claiming Interview owes them money.
Former associate publisher Jane Katz, who says she was sacked without cause, also charges the publication owes her $230,000 in unpaid wages, while former Interview President Dan Ragone alleges he is owed $170,000. Born in 1969, Interview was known as a cutting-edge art, fashion, entertainment and culture barometer.
And former Interview president Dan Ragone says the magazine owes him $170,000.
The magazine was purchased by Brant Publications in 1987 after Warhol's death.
It's undoubtedly a tragic end for the magazine once dubbed "The Crystal Ball of Pop Culture" because of its iconic covers and lengthy, often freewheeling interviews with artists and people of note conducted by their celebrity peers.
Interview has also faced a spate of lawsuits recently, starting with former employee Deborah Blasucci filing in November 2016. Over the years, it featured conversational interviews with celebrities like Liza Minelli and Grace Jones and other features, including Warhol's trademark "15 Questions" interview.
