Time Out magazine is going digital-only during the coronavirus pandemic.
The long-running magazine recently changed its logo to Time In, in “support of responsible health policy”.
Now the magazine will suspend its London print publication.
“With many city-dwellers currently working from home and fewer commuters in the city, Time Out magazine will temporarily have a Time In too – like so many people – and go digital-only for now,” a statement said.

“Once the city bounces back, the magazine will return.”
Time Out’s global editor-in-chief Caroline McGinn said: “Since 1968, Time Out has curated the best of the city and has been part of urban cultural life around the world, through good times and more challenging ones.
“In these unprecedented times, we will continue to bring the best of the city to Londoners and to celebrate its diversity, spirit and resilience, which are so apparent in this crisis: we’re here to document that as Time In until it’s time to go out again.”
The magazine has been focusing on information on supporting local businesses.
Time Out has been published in London since 1968, with one interruption during a strike in 1981.
