Editor & Publisher has found a new buyer — but its top editorial talent will not stay with the magazine.
The magazine, which chronicles the newspaper industry, was set to fold after Nielsen sold many, but not all, of its trade publications to e5 Global Media LLC. But Duncan McIntosh, the California-based publisher of Boating World magazine and Fish Rap News, stepped in and purchased the title from Nielsen.
However, editor Greg Mitchell announced Thursday that McIntosh has informed him that he will no longer have a position with the magazine:
Got call from new buyer of Editor & Publisher, Duncan McIntosh, who publishes Boating World magazine and Fish Rap News in Irvine, Ca., a couple of hours ago, telling me that I am out as editor after eight years (and 10 years with magazine). The great Joe "Scoop" Strupp also out -- a truly great loss. One week ago in a meeting new owner told me flatly, "Extremely impressed with your great work and definitely will retain you."
