Limelight revived by investors. Arts magazine Limelight has been given a reprieve after a group of investors came forward to try to save it. The publisher announced last week that the magazine's March issue would not be published -- a decision that has been reversed, with the pages going to the printer on Monday.

A statement on Limelight's website says the longer-term future of the magazine will be settled within the next couple of weeks. Editor Jo Litson said in the statement: "We are thrilled that a small group of investors, who believe passionately in the importance of Limelight, particularly at a time of shrinking arts coverage, have ensured that the March issue will be published, and excited at the possibility of working with them into the future."
