Transworld Media made the decision to suspend publication of BMX Business News with the December issue. As the BMX industry has consolidated, the ad support has slowed for BBN. The BMX industry and Transworld are better served by reinvesting these resources in the continued multi-media expansion of the largest and strongest brand in the sport, RIDE BMX, and RideBMX.com.
Transworld Media are currently soliciting industry opinions and ideas to find additional ways we can serve the business side of the BMX industry for 2007. - Bill Dies.
A reaction from BBN's James Ayres: "Last Friday the plug was pulled on the title. As of our November/December issue (which should be out any day now), BBN will cease to exist, as will my job. I really feel like we had a good thing going...
I know a few of you have told me along the way that BBN has really helped the BMX business grow, which makes me feel like we were heading in a good direction. Unfortunately, the title just wasn't producing any revenue (it's not like ad dollars are exactly falling from anyone's tree these days), so the executive decision was to let it go, and it's one I fully understand."
