“Due to overwhelming reader and advertiser demand, Editor & Publisher will publish its next issue, the January 2010 edition, as planned, Editor Greg Mitchell announced today.”
The issue will be mailed around Jan. 4, and that will be the magazine’s final issue.
E&P staffers will also post stories online til Jan. 1, which is the real “end of the line,” according to staff.
The same article also notes that “a number of outside companies and individuals have expressed interest in possibly keeping E&P going, so stay tuned for updates.”
We wouldn’t be surprised if Editor & Publisher continued, or was resurrected, in some form. Will it be a print magazine? This editor doubts it, but anything’s possible when you are, apparently, the most beloved magazine in the biz.
