MPH reportedly DOA as brash upstart falls victim to restructuring

The irreverent monthly car magazine MPH is reportedly road kill. The move by publisher American Media Inc. comes as Chairman David Pecker restructures the company, doing away with the upstart publication less than a year after its September launch. The changes at AMI will also see the demise of Celebrity Living (read: MTV’s ‘Cribs’ in print) and Shape en Español. The National Enquirer, an AMI mainstay will move its offices back to Boca Raton, Florida and change editors.

The publication's website remains up and functional, but doesn't appear to have been updated since word of the shuttering came down Tuesday.

No word yet on what (if any) compensation awaits the magazine’s subscribers.
