Holding Out Hope For E&P‘s Revival In The New Year

epOct09.jpgIn today’s Editor & Publisher deathwatch news, editor Greg Mitchell revealed today that there are parties interested in buying the now-defunct newspaper trade, but a deal is not likely to happen for a few weeks.

“Several possible buyers have stepped forward but any final agreement, we’re told, is at least two weeks away. There appears to be a good chance that Editor & Publisher will resume but we cannot say when or in precisely what form.”

Since the magazine’s staff was unable to find a buyer before they were scheduled to vacate E&P‘s offices today, the pub has suspended its operations and staffers are packing up as we speak. Mitchell said E&P‘s Web site and its two blogs — “Fitz & Jen” and “The E&P Pub” — will stay still be online, but won’t be updated.

However, it looks like the staff will be updating a new blog, E&P In Exile. Launched today, the site tells readers, “Stay tuned here for news, links and commentary by once and we hope future E&P staffers.”

Hopefully the New Year will bring better news for Mitchell and the rest of the E&P staff.
