AOL Music Shuts Down

AOL Music111Multiple sources, including AOL Radio, are reporting the shuttering of AOL Music and their properties. AOL employees shared the news via social media on Friday afternoon.

Rock news site Spinner, a website under the AOL Music umbrella, tweeted earlier today: “Hey guys. Just found out from AOL that we’re shutting down. Today is our last day. Seriously.” The post was then taken down.

Spinner editor Dan Reilly said via Twitter, “Well, we all just got laid off. AOL Music is finished.”

According to reports, AOL Radio will continue its services. Attempts to reach out to AOL staff were not immediately returned.

Nashville-based country news site The Boot is also under the AOL Music umbrella.
