Kirkus Reviews May Have Found Second Life

kirkus_reviews-712295.gifWhen Editor & Publisher was nixed by Nielsen Business Media, hope became slim for a potential recovery of the publication, though the pub’s former employees — who have rallied around a new blog — are still holding out for an investor.

That may not be as a crazy as it sounds: another former Nielsen title, publishing industry publication Kirkus Reviews, is hinting that they may have found a buyer. Folio reports:

“In an e-mail to Folio, Kirkus managing editor and nonfiction editor Eric Liebetrau said he is unsure who the buyer is or how far along the process might be but said the magazine’s staff ‘is set to return.’ A Nielsen spokesperson did not immediately return a request for comment.”

We hope for the best for Kirkus Reviews: if there’s one thing we could use in the new decade, it’s better news for the news industry.
