Will Conde Nast Changes Make a Difference, and Is a Deal with Scripps in the Works?

In this week's Jack Myers Media Business Report I review the recent changes at Condẻ Nast and argue that they will have little material impact on the company's success in expanding its digital initiatives. I also connect the dots between Condẻ Nast and other media companies with complementary needs, such as Scripps Networks. In this context, I review the overall prognosis for magazine publishing companies as the business continues to transform around digital expansion and free content distribution.
