News broke today that Duncan McIntosh Co. has eliminated the editorial staff of Editor & Publisher.
McIntosh assumed control of the magazine earlier this year, saving the title from Neilson’s decision to shutter the century-old magazine. Greg Mitchell from The Nation has more details: “Top editor Mark Fitzgerald and tech editor Jim Rosenberg also were axed and the new editor works for owner Duncan McIntosh who took over in January—his other titles, based in Irving, Ca., are boating and fishing magazines.”
According to Richard Prince, the editors will be replaced by other McIntosh staffers: “Jeff Fleming has assumed the position of Editor in Chief of the magazine, Kristina Ackermann has taken on the duties of managing editor and Deena Nenad has become associate editor.” (Via Calvin Reid)
