– Editor & Publisher, the 126-year-old trade magazine covering the
newspaper business that was recently shuttered by Nielsen, announced that it
will resume publication in print and online following its acquisition by Duncan
McIntosh Co. Inc., an Irvine, Calif.-based publisher and events firm.
terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
"Such a critical information
source for a newspaper industry so desperately in need of help should not go
away," said McIntosh. "I’ve been a reader of E&P over the course
of 30 years and know its incredible value to readers and advertisers."
reports that new editor Mark Fitzgerald says that "most" of the
publication’s staff will be back, and that Nielsen is allowing them to operate
from its offices for the next three months during the transition.
