F+W Media to Shutter Print’s NYC Operations

This just in: Print parent F+W Media is shuttering the magazine’s New York City office and laying off the New York-based team: executive editor Mason Currey, editor-in-chief Michael Silverberg, and art director Ben King. Current plans call for F+W to continue publishing Print out of the company’s corporate headquarters in Blue Ash, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati. “We’re finishing up the April issue,” Silverberg told us today. “That will take us through early February, and then Print is moving to Cincinnati.”

According to a spokesperson for F+W Media, the Print editorial operation will be merged with that of HOW magazine. “Integrating our Design Community into a single dedicated team is designed to create more synergy between our brands and stronger collaboration between the e-media, e-commerce, events, magazines, and books teams that work on its many and varied products,” said Gary Lynch, group publisher. Former Print editor-in-chief Emily Gordon offered a more succinct assessment of the situation. “It’s the end of an era,” she told us.
