UR Chicago Goes on Hiatus

By Tankboy on Sep 3, 2008 4:27PM

UR Chicago has just announced they are going on indefinite hiatus and that this month's issue will be the last to appear in print. They will still maintain an online presence, and publishers En Prise Entertainment will continue to promote music and art events around town, but we're sad to say that the magazine itself is kaput due to obvious economic factors facing the print media industry. We thought it was one of the best independently produced arts and entertainment periodicals in Chicago, so we're rather bummed to see it become another casualty. (Full disclosure: A number of Chicagoist writers have freelanced or been employed by UR Chicago in the past.)
