By John Honovich, Published Apr 22, 2020, 08:09am EDT

For nearly 50 years, SDM published a print trade magazine. Now, coronavirus claims its latest victim.

While SDM will continue in digital / web versions as well as print versions at industry events, the flagship print version will stop in the next few months, SDM confirmed to IPVM.
