Private Frazer’s Doomed Magazines

Unsubstantiated Rumours

Two titles that are reported to be in the departure lounge.

A source suggests that Crimson’s Growing Business magazine has given up on its print edition. The last issue came out just before Christmas and a new one should be hitting the mail about now, but there’s no sign of it yet. Several emails to Crimson have gone unanswered.

But an email to Private Frazer this morning states that The Publican is calling ‘time’ on its print edition.

Any further information – or a definitive statement from either Crimson or UBM – would be warmly welcomed. email or just leave a message in the comments section below.

Finally, the Guardian reports this morning that Future is in the running for BBC Magazines. Sounds to me like PR flummery – if they do buy the titles (for upwards of £100 million) I will eat my sporran.
