MediaWeek to go online-only; 18 Brand Media editorial jobs cut

Due to a restructure at Haymarket, MediaWeek is to end its print edition and publish online-only, as part of a team.

Today’s issue (November 17) is the last, the publication has reported. Monthly digital marketing magazine Revolution is to become a quarterly supplement.

Eighteen editorial positions (out of 58) will be lost from Brand Media, the group reported.

“We will do everything we can to keep job losses to a minimum, and we are looking to redeploy affected staff in other parts of the group,” said Jane Macken, managing director of Haymarket Brand Media.

“I would like to place on record my appreciation of the efforts of all our editorial staff. Throughout a very difficult time they have continued to produce editorial content of exceptionally high quality.”

It’s the latest of the media industry titles to feel the pinch: in April 2009, Press Gazette’s closure was announced, before it was bought by Progressive Media and re-opened.
