You may be holding the last issue of Editor & Publisher. As we go to press on Dec. 28, final word has not yet emerged on last-minute talks with several possible buyers. The Nielsen Co. inexplicably announced on Dec. 10 that E&P would shut down after serving as the newspaper industry’s “”bible”” since 1884. This provoked outrage from many quarters and an outpouring of thousands of messages of support, so hope remains that E&P can continue in print and/or online.
For commentary by E&P editors and readers, see Letters (p. 4), Editorial (p. 16) and aptly titled “”-30-“” (p. 42). Want to contact any of the staffers? See p. 39. It’s been a challenge, an honor and a pleasure to serve you for these past years or, for some of us, decades. Good luck to you all.
