Struggling tech and media giant Yahoo dropped the axe on seven content verticals today. Yahoo Food, Health, Parenting, Makers, Travel, Autos and Real Estate will no longer exist as stand-alone digital magazines. Instead, the publisher will focus on its four remaining verticals: News, Sports, Finance and Lifestyle.
Yahoo is getting into the magazine business. During a keynote presentation at the Consumer Electronics CEO Marissa Mayer announced several new products, including a planned line of digital magazines, starting with Yahoo Food. A similar product is in the works for Yahoo Tech, which is being helmed by former New York Times columnist David Pogue.
