LXer: PC Magazine, a Flagship for Ziff Davis, Will Cease Printing a Paper Version

Published at LXer:

Ziff Davis Media announced Wednesday that it was ending print publication of its 27-year-old flagship, PC Magazine, and would take the title online only. PC Magazine’s circulation was 1.2 million in the late 1990s. It is the latest of several magazine publishers to drop a print edition, as advertising plummets and the cost of printing a paper version rises. “The viability for us to continue to publish in print just isn’t there anymore,” Jason Young, chief executive of Ziff Davis, said in an interview.

No surprise, they've been bleeding subscribers for a long time. Of course if they hadn't completely and totally trashed what had been a decent magazine, they might have not died. The appointment of Lance Ulanoff as the editor was the final nail in their coffin. Not only is he generally uninformed, he is so under Microsoft's thumb it isn't funny. They should have renamed it Windows Magazine a long time ago.
