inter.jpgReed Business Information became the latest media property to restructure and Publishers Weekly editor-in-chief Sara Nelson was a surprise casualty. Brian Kenney, the editor of School Library Journal, will replace Nelson while keeping his position.

In total, RBI will cut seven percent of its staff in a move that Reed Elsevier hopes will increase the arm’s sale price.
