"16" Magazine and the Birth of Music Journalism

Rock journalism was born in the most benign way: in 1957 via a New York City teen idol magazine. An ambitious former model named Gloria Stavers rose through its editorial rank and steered the magazine from the Elvis era in the 50s through the British Invasion of the 60s and the American re-capture of the 70s. Before "16" passed on in 2001, it blazed the trail for every rock publication to follow, especially when it gave the thumbs up in 1967 to a fledgling publication called "Rolling Stone."
