It’s that time of the month again — time for another epic issue of Australia’s Freerider MX magazine to hit the streets. Kyle Loza nabbed himself the cover of issue 55 and if I’m not mistaken, this is Loza’s first-ever cover, so congrats on that homie. Freerider MX has just been killing it with the covers lately… it’s almost like they have an entire department dedicated to making the covers as ill as possible.

On top of releasing a new issue, the boys over at FRMX have been busy harnessing new technology in an effort to bring the mag to the masses via the internet. The new digital edition of Freerider MX will be available May 20th (when issue 55 hits the newsstands) and the best part about it is that it’ll only cost $1 an issue. Also, if you subscribe, then you know that each issue of FRMX includes an in-house-produced DVD, but now you don’t have to subscribe to get your hands on the vid. All you have to do is visit FreeriderMX.com/Youreeeka and you can watch the DVD’s online for $3.99. Pretty sweet, aye? Australian’s say aye don’t they? Or is that just the Canadians? Either way, they’re both weird peeps.

NATPE ’09: Complete Coverage from B&C
Dispelling the widespread “this-may-be-the-last-NATPE” speculation amid the troubled economic climate, National Association of Television Program Executives CEO Rick Feldman announced the organization will once again hold its annual conference at this time next year.

Feldman made the announcement during opening remarks Tuesday morning at the conference in the Mandalay Bay convention center in Las Vegas.

“Everyone in this room is under pressure to make the most of their time and money,” Feldman said before introducing the conference keynote with Lions Gate CEO Jon Feltheimer.

Feldman said NATPE will offer a variety of options for exhibitors and participants at next year’s conference to adapt to companies’ budgets.

How the exhibition area will come together has yet to be determined. But one thing that will be different, according to Feldman, is that Mandalay Bay will increase the number of hotel suites made available to conferees.
