The shakeup at Meredith Corp. this week also included the exit of Lauren Stanich, a senior vice president with oversight over More magazine and the now-defunct ReadyMade.
The magazine industry has started to creep back post-recession, but the improvement hasn’t taken hold evenly. Today, Meredith Corp. shut ReadyMade, a small shelter magazine for do-it-yourselfers, and laid off its staff of about 10, plus about roughly 65 others, mostly in its magazine division. All told, the layoffs represent about 2 percent of the corporation.
