Publishing Underwent Massive Disruption but Remains Grounded With Quality Content and Emerging Tech

Rumors of print's demise and accusations of fake news consumed 2018

No one can argue that publishing hasn’t gone through monumental changes, which is especially seen over the course of 2018 with the many print publications that shuttered this year, like Glamour, or at the very least drastically reduced their print schedules, like Seventeen. There was also the buying and selling of popular digital publications, like Mic, which was purchased by Bustle Digital Group, and Time Magazine’s sale from Meredith to the Benioffs. Unfortunately, with much of this reshuffling and reshaping of the landscape comes layoffs, such as the 200 employees laid off by Meredith when they first announced their structural changes in September.
