As Nielsen Sells Titles, Editor & Publisher, Kirkus Reviews Fold

Along with the news this morning that The Nielsen Co. had sold off a number of brands including The Hollywood Reporter came the very sad news that the company was shuttering newspaper trade publication Editor & Publisher, as well as book review journal Kirkus Reviews.

We’re not sure what will happen to the staffs of these pubs, although Silicon Alley Insider has an internal memo. Our calls to Nielsen have not yet been returned. (See below for an update.)

Have any information? Send us an email or leave a tip in the box at right.

Update: A Nielsen spokesman confirms that the two pubs will be closing at the end of the year. Fewer than 20 people should be affected by the closures.
