Ping! The inbox at firstname.lastname@example.org receives an unsubstantiated rumour (my favourite kind):
According to my correspondent, INK Publishing plans to make editorial/design people redundant as it prepares to close Voyager, Yeah Baby! and CNBC Business.
Voyager and YeahBaby! are the inflight magazines of respectively BMI and BMI Baby. With the BMI takeover by BA, the brands and the magazines are flying south.
CNBC Business is a monthly that used to be called CNBC European Business and was Ink’s attempt to get a business title on the newsstands to rival Businessweek. CNBC have apparently pulled the plug on the magazine and ad revenues alone aren’t enough to sustain it.
Confirmation or rebuttals to the usual address…
