What Titles Were You Sad To Lose In 2009?

gourmet.jpgIt hasn’t been the easiest year for print journalism. Crain’s New York Business reported Friday that 367 magazines have been axed in the last 12 months, with 64 going online-only, according to preliminary numbers from online database Mediafinder.com. (In October, Mediafinder said 383 had already closed up shop during the first nine months for the year).

According to The Business Insider, by July over 105 newspapers received similar treatment. Many more have had to scale back or go to an almost entirely digital format to survive.

In early October, Condé Nast took a particularly brutal hit with the shuttering of four titles: Gourmet, Cookie, Modern Bride, and Elegant Bride. And those closures came months after Condé folded Domino and Portfolio earlier in the year.

Still, it could have been worse…The New York Times is still around, despite some pessimistic predictions, right? So we here at FishbowlNY would like to hear from our readers: which closing affected you the most? Feel free to add your own to our list, and remember, we’re sticking to print publications (RIP Jossip.com) that disappeared in 2009, not including any that went online-only. And pass it along to your friends — we’ll be taking your answers into consideration next week, when we feature some year-end lists handpicked by the FishbowlNY editors. What can we say, it’s that time of year.

Has Jossip Folded?

jossipclose.pngClick on the homepage of Jossip.com and you will find a message that says “We’re on Pause.” Gawker however is reporting that David Hauslaib‘s six-year-old gossip site, which has been up for sale since March — David spoke to us on the Menu about it back in February — has in fact folded and its two editors, Cord Jefferson and Drew Grant, fired.

We emailed Hauslib for clarification and will let you know as soon as we hear back.

Morning Media Menu: February 5

mornmm.gifToday on the Menu we talk to Jossip.com founder and editorial director David Hauslaib who tells us that while there are plenty of gossip sites out there he doesn’t “see a lot of creative things going on, I see a lot of copycatting.”

Also up for discussion: Why the AP’s potential lawsuit over artist Shepard Fairey‘s Obama HOPE image may be a lose-lose situation for the company. And why celebrity weight-loss (and gain) is a potential win-win for magazines.
