FishbowlNY Editor On The Menu: E&P Closure and Books Reviews After Kirkus

mmm_2-3.gifThis morning, host Jason Boog of GalleyCat was joined by special co-host Amanda Ernst, editor of FishbowlNY, on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu. The two welcomed Kat Meyer, chief content wrangler for Next Chapter Communications, moderator for the #followreader Twitter chat and a blogger at Follow The Reader.

The biggest news of the day was Nielsen Co.‘s decision to shutter book review journal Kirkus Reviews and newspaper industry trade Editor & Publisher. All three lamented the closings, but Amanda pointed out that E&P might have had a chance to be saved. Kat talked about what might possibly replace the reviews that Kirkus provided. Social media might provide a solution.

Also discussed: Kat’s optimistic wrap-up of 2009 and predictions about 2010, including a future with new e-readers like the much anticipated tablet.
