Alas, Editor & Publisher is dead!
AS A YOUNG reporter for an Indiana newspaper I sold my first freelance story to Editor & Publisher magazine for $10. For the week that my check arrived, my income had increased 14 pct. I was ecstatic. I remembered that happy moment this week with the report that E&P , the industry publication that had made its way into every newspaper office in the country, died on Thursday after more than a century of serving its ever-shrinking newspaper base. When an important industry publication turns off the lights it is another sad reflection of the growing death toll of its clients.
