The death of print continues apace.
Today's victim: The monthly Ladies' Home Journal. After 131 years, the July issue will be its last, reports Ad Age. The website will continue on, and the magazine itself will become a quarterly special-interest publication available starting this fall on newsstands, vs. via subscription. Nonetheless, the entire editorial staff was laid off as part of the change.
LHJ has a circulation of 3.2 million, down from a 1968 peak of 6.8 million, according to parent company Meredith. Subscribers will get one of Meredith's other titles — Every Day with Rachael Ray, More or Better Homes & Gardens — in their mailboxes instead.
