The Los Angeles Times Magazine is shutting down and will publish its final issue on June 3.

Los Angeles Times president, Kathy Thomson, notified staff in a meeting this morning that the newspaper is killing its Sunday magazine. Times writer James Rainey tweeted the news.

"I think it's fair to say there were revenue issues," the magazine's editor Nancie Clare told FishbowlLA. "It's still a tough economic climate, especially for print. I don't think they got rid of us because they don't like us."
