Joyeux Noel (Potentially?): Hearst / Hachette Talks Continue

  • SHARES

The (long-rumored) talks between Hearst and HFMUS continue, with Adweek reporting that Steve Parr, the president and CEO of the France-based Lagadère Active U.S. branch has been spotted visiting the Hearst building, and that further meetings between higher-ups at both companies have been scheduled for the coming weeks, making for a busy and, possibly, productive Noel on both sides of the Atlantic.

One of the more important talking points, evidently, is whether Hearst will be willing and able to seamlessly fold HFMUS-owned titles like Elle and Car & Driver into its current stable of titles.
