Online Dispatches: EW, Forbes.com, Double X

megaphone.gifKeeping an eyes on some changes occurring online this week:

  • Will EW go online only? (On a side note we imagine this will be a recurring theme in 2009 media land). Gawker was speculating on rumors that the magazine, whose print circulation has plummeted this year, may move the whole operation online since their web traffic is strong. However! Turns out it was a false lead and the magazine is “full steam ahead for 2009.”
  • Forbes.com, which suffered some layoffs a few weeks back, is further embracing its online presence with a redesign of the story pages, its award-winning Video Network, stock quotes and executive tear sheets.
  • Double X, Slate‘s soon-to-be launched Web magazine for women, has tapped former Jezebel-er Jessica Grose to be their managing editor.
