Oh, say it ain’t so!
Jane magazine bit the dust earlier this year, but it looks like its parent company, Conde Nast, may not be done killing off publications.
AFTER yanking the plug on Jane, rumors are rife that CondÃ© Nast isn’t done killing magazines in its stable. One insider said, “Teen Vogue could be the next to fold. Their ad pages are down and people are freaking out. A bunch of editorial staffers have recently jumped ship, including [editor-in-chief] Amy Astley’s assistant, and many more are looking for new jobs.” A rep for CondÃ© Nast said, “Not true. Teen Vogue makes money.”
This is awful!!! What will become of Lauren Conrad?! And Whitney?!!!
Everything I’ve heard in the past six months indicates that Teen Vogue’s circulation numbers are up — in part due to its role in The Hills — but I guess that’s not necessarily a reflection of how their ad pages are doing.
Oooh, maybe Teen Vogue will fold and Lauren will have to go work for Brent Bolthouse with Heidi! Now that would be fun!
