More Print Mags Go Bye-Bye
Life Magazine, which was revived some time in the 1980s, will be publishing one last print issue. After that, their only presence will be online. Child Magazine is also ending print life but will have an online presence as part of a portal.
The Money’s In Social Networks
Print mags might be finding focusing on online editions more profitable, but in the meantime, MySpace is pulling in about US$30M in revenue. Per month, that is.
Minority Journalists Increasing Or Decreasing?
Editor and Publisher magazine reports that the percentage of minority journalists in the US decreased since last year, according to an annual survey by the American Society of Newspaper Editors. E&P also points out that the actual number of minority journalists actually increased by 200. Furthermore, of the 2,000 full-time journalists only working online for a newspaper, 16% were minorities.
I would think, though, that the percentage of full-time “minority” bloggers online is much higher. Of course, online, how do you define “minority”?
