E&P is Back, Kind Of, Top Editors Out

epclarejeff.png
We were a little premature in our elation yesterday that Editor & Publisher resumed publishing the 126 year old trade. Yes, they are back. But the new E&P is a clone of what existed last month. Editor-in-Chief Greg Mitchell is gone as is Joe Strupp.

The above tweet is from Editor of Mother Jones Clara Jeffery and she sums it up pretty well.

Mitchell’s announced this fact via Twitter:

If you missed last nite: E&P is back but I am out, as is the great @JoeStrupp.

Joe Strupp tweeted:

E&P is sold, but I am not with it. Not the right fit for me. Weighing other options. See my resume at www.joestrupp.com

We wish Greg and Joe a short job hunt. Bummer.

Breaking: Editor & Publisher Finds A Buyer But Sheds Staff

It looks like 2010 has given a new life to Editor & Publisher, which was shuttered two weeks ago. We noticed that new content was being published on E&P‘s website earlier today, and former editor Greg Mitchell has just confirmed that the publication has been bought, though he is no longer on staff. Some employees will be kept, we are told, though not all. Check back for updates as they develop.

Update: E&P announced on its Website that it has been sold to Duncan McIntosh Co. Inc., an Irvine, Calif.-based magazine and newspaper publisher that owns publications such as Boating World. Charles McKeown will be staying on as publisher of E&P and Mark Fitzgerald will be taking over the editor post from Mitchell. Senior editor Joe Strupp is also out.

On his blog, Mitchell writes, “One week ago in a meeting [the] new owner told me flatly, ‘Extremely impressed with your great work and definitely will retain you.’”

The February issue will be published as planned.

We’ve noticed that there are three new stories posted today on the now defunct Editor & Publisher‘s homepage.

Although former E&P staffers have been blogging at E&P In Exile since the pub closed up shop two weeks ago, no new stories have been posted on the site since late December…until today. The mag’s Twitter feed is up and running again, too!

We’ve put in a query to editor Greg Mitchell asking just what’s up, and we’ll keep you posted if we hear of any good news. If you know anything, send us an email.

E&P in Exile Blog Launches

The next pit stop on the Editor & Publisher saga is a neat little Blogger blog called E&P in Exile.

On the side bar, skimming, we thought it said, “Find Us A Home.” It’s worse than that, it says, “Find Us At Home.” Under which are the names: Greg Mitchell, Shawn Moynihan, Jim Rosenberg, Joe Strupp, Jennifer Saba, Mark Fitzgerald, Reiko Matsuo and Charles McKeown . We wish them all the best of luck.

    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.

    E&P Staffers Prepare To Vacate Offices This Week

    epOct09.jpgAlthough he had been holding out hope that some angel buyer would step forward to save the day, Editor & Publisher editor Greg Mitchell admitted in a blog post yesterday that no such deal has been reached. As a result, the newspaper industry trade’s staffers are preparing to exit their Astor Place offices by Thursday, having already completed and sent their final issue to press. Wrote Mitchell:

    “Indeed, there has been a lot of interest but no firm news to report as yet. We are scheduled to vacate and shut down for good by the end of Thursday if nothing materializes, though of course E&P could always be brought back a bit later.”

    But, prior to wrapping up, E&P managed to eek out one last milestone. By completing its final issue, dated January 2010, the pub made it into its 126th year of publication.

    Like Mitchell, we’re hopeful someone will come along to save E&P, but if not, it will be missed.

    E&P Editor Greg Mitchell: Stay Tuned

    Greg-Mitchell.jpgGreg Mitchell writes on Huffpo that he was expecting the selling of Billboard, The Hollywood Reporter, Adweek to eclipse the closing of E&P. He writes:

    Believe me, we were amused, though heartened, to see “Editor & Publisher” (with the correct ampersand, no less) hitting No. 4 on the top Twitter trending topics, and stay in the top 10 most of the day. It must have shocked others, as well, as many tweeted, “WHAT is Editor & Publisher doing in trending topics?”

    Best of all, we were swamped with e-mails from longtime fans — some of them household names — who expressed outrage at the sudden closing, offered to send money (or to help us go online), praised our work and said this meant doom for the newspaper industry. I wouldn’t exactly go along with that final prediction, but it was good to hear so many tell us how much they loved us and what a big role we had played in their lives, some going back decades.

    He also says there’s a decent chance that someone will step forward and help the publication continue.

    Yes, this is what passes for feel good story in the media these days and we’re taking it.

  • E&P Plans To Publish January Issue

    epOct09.jpgJust a few days after its publisher the Nielsen Co. announced that it would close the magazine at the end of the year, newspaper trade Editor & Publisher announced it would be publishing its January issue, “due to overwhelming reader and advertiser demand.”

    The pub thinks this decision shows there may still be hope for it to rise again — just look at the headline of the story E&P wrote about it: “‘E&P’ To Publish January Issue — Hope Remains?”

    After Nielsen’s surprising decision on Thursday to close the pub, E&P first decided to publish the articles from its upcoming January issue — already completed — online until January 1, the day the title was set to close for good. Now, subscribers will also receive a print version of the issue, due around January 4.

    And because of such a huge outpouring of support from the industry, readers and advertisers, E&P staffers are still holding out hope, telling readers to “stay tuned for updates” about the magazine’s fate.
