Private Frazer’s Doomed Magazines

Closure by Design

Just when we all thought Centaur had forgotten how to shut something down, they surprise us by axing two high profile magazines in one day. So farewell, then Design Week and New Media Age (irony alert!) and adios to various monthlies which they are trying to sell. Again we see that print weeklies, formerly sustained by recruitment classifieds, are left shredded by the interweb. Any one want to bet on Marketing Week surviving the year?

Add that to UBM offloading a stack of titles and EMAP losing profits (and did you notice Simon Middleboe has now popped up at Centaur?) and life in B2B has suddenly become interesting to connoisseurs of closure once again.

  1. hate to see the carnage; sure we read a lot online these days, but it’s nice to cozy up and enjoy printed material too…
