UK media trade mag closes after 41 years

The Press Gazette, a magazine out of Britain that reports on journalism and the media, has closed after 41 years. According to Wikipedia, co-owner Matthew Freud claimed the decision to put the magazine up for sale in October was in part due to “indifference in the newspaper industry to the journal.” On November 24, the Press Gazette posted a brief note on their website to thank their loyal readers and announce the magazine’s closure.

FOLLOW UP (from the Wikipedia entry): After the publication missed one issue, Wilmington Group plc (LSEWIL) announced on 5 December 2006 that it had acquired the title. Both the magazine and its website underwent a redesign in May 2007, including a new masthead and body font.
