Big Things Are Happening at the Silicon Valley Business Journal

Former Bloomberg LA bureau chief and TV Week editor Greg Baumann joined the Silicon Valley Business Journal as EIC last October after a year-long honeymoon trip, a move from Playa del Rey to the Bay Area and some consulting/operational work. Twelve weeks into the new job, he’s overseeing some major changes.

The first of several planned new website iterations went live at the beginning of the year, alongside a January 4 weekly print edition boasting a whole new look. The latter is the handiwork of Mario Garcia, previously instrumental in the redesign of the Wall Street Journal and Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper editions.

“He’s here now in our newsroom,” Baumann tells FishbowlLA via telephone from San Jose, “advising on pages for the next issue. Our print version has a digitally inspired look that operates on the principles of simplicity and cleanliness.”

TV Week Going Online-Only

Trade publication TelevisionWeek will cease printing at the end of the month. The TV programming newspaper will continue to publish online, but much of the staff will be laid off. Variety.com has details:

The weekly TV trades have been hurt in recent years by consolidation in the syndication and TV station businesses, which were the bread and butter of pubs like TV Week. Once upon a time, events like NATPE would generate enough ads for 100-plus page issues; but that advertising has dried up in recent years.

More recently, TV Week ceased publishing a print pub on some weeks, but continued to produce editions of the paper during those weeks online.

TV Week publisher Chuck Ross will continue to oversee TV Week’s online presence, while executive editor Tom Gilbert and deputy editor/columnist Josef Adalian, who just launched a new TV-oriented blog, will also remain; pub is expected to supplement their work with freelancers. Editor Greg Baumann is believed to be departing.
