A Sad Day for Publishing News

It’s a sad day when we see the trade magazine Publishing News announce its closure.
Fred Newman was one of the first to sit down with me and talk through the industry and its issues. He not only listened but also gave me column inches. The paper was the Nibbies and the Nibbies was Publishing News and it was apt that Fred made it to this year’s event.

Many will speculate where the paper went wrong and applaud what it did right.
I personally will be very grateful for the time and the coverage it gave me and others in the industry that weren’t always from the majors. It supported the Publishing in the 21st Century Series in the late 90s and it was the first to applaud the Brave New World report and support its findings.
Thanks and fond memories.
