Prog is a British magazine dedicated to progressive rock music.
On the 19th December 2016, TeamRock called in the administrators with the loss of 70 jobs, after experiencing financial difficulties. TeamRock's stable of titles including Classic Rock, Metal Hammer, and Prog, temporarily suspended publication.
On 8 January 2017, Prog, along with sister magazines Classic Rock and Metal Hammer, were bought by previous owners Future Publishing for £800,000.
History and profile
Prog is published by Future plc, who are also responsible for its "sister" publications Classic Rock and Metal Hammer. The magazine is edited by Jerry Ewing and focused on artists and bands from the past and present. The magazine first appeared in March 2009.
Prog was published nine times per year until 2012 when its frequency was switched to ten times a year.
According to The Guardian in 2010, the magazine was selling 22,000 copies an issue, half the circulation of the NME. Journalist and broadcaster Gavin Esler described it in 2014 as "one of the few music magazines I can think of whose circulation is healthy".
Progressive Music Awards
Prog magazine was also behind the annual Progressive Music Awards that was established in 2012.
