Last year’s move to 90 Fifth Ave, the home of Forbes magazine’s dotcom business, looked to combine the resources of the print and Web teams. But since then, the business magazine has dramatically slashed its staff and Forbes.com lost its CEO. As Kelly reported today, at the time of the move, Steve Forbes said the company had “outgrown its space.” So does a move back reflect how much Forbes has shrunk in the past year?
Another interesting tidbit from Kelly’s Forbes item today involved additional cutbacks at the magazine:
“The slide in ad pages at Forbes — they fell more than 30 percent last year — is prompting a change in the way the magazine is bound together. Instead of being glued together in a binding method known as ‘perfect bound,’ the pages will be stapled. It is a tacit acknowledgement that the magazine will remain slimmer for a longer period of time.”
We’ve reached out to Forbes for comment, but have yet to hear from them. If you have any info, send us an email or drop a tip in the anonymous box at right.
