Private Frazer’s Doomed Magazines

February 27, 2009

Half-full or half-empty?

Filed under: Recession — privatefraser @ 5:53 pm

Certain jumped-up laddies have accused me of being a wee bit negative, so I thought I’d try and do a fair and impartial round up of recent news.

On the debit side:

  • Centaur Media sees half-year pre-tax profits fall 86%
  • Natmag plans to make up to 15% of staff redundant
  • Emap to make all magazines A4 in cost-cutting drive
  • ‘Challenging’ outlook at RBI prompts cost savings
  • GMG chief sees bleak future for print version of Auto Trader
  • Bauer Media joins the publishing industry pay freeze
  • Condé Nast closes German Vanity Fair
  • Reed Business Information cuts 35 jobs

But it’s not all gloom!

  • Future launches knitting magazine
  • Spectator Australia has a launch party

See – you feel better already!
