Condé Nast has announced that it will close the Teen Vogue print edition and cut about 80 jobs.
According to an article on WWD, Condé Nast has announced that it will close the Teen Vogue print edition. The company will also cut about 80 which is a 2.5% decrease from its 3,000 employees.
Lat year, the company announced that it would cut Teen Vogue’s print editions from 9 publications annually to just 4 a year. The company, however, is already cutting that print schedule and closing the magazine’s print edition.
The company will also make cuts to its least popular magazines. GQ, Glamour, And Allure will go from 12 issues a year to 11. Bon Appètit will go from 11 to 10 and W and Condé Nast Traveler will go from 10 to 8. Vanity Fair, Vogue, Wired, and Brides will continue to be published the same way they are now.
As for Teen Vogue’s newly hired Editor in Chief Elaine Welteroth, she may continue “working on the title in some capacity and will likely find an additional role at the company,” according to sources with knowledge of the cuts. Rumors are circulating that she could become Glamour’s new Editor in Chief, replacing Cindi Leive who announced her resignation last month or go to Allure with Editor in Chief Michelle Lee going to Glamour.
The new editors of Glamour and Vanity Fair, which Editor Greydon Carter is rumored to be, are estimated to be announced by Thanksgiving.
A spokesperson for Condé Nast declined to comment.
As for if Welteroth will stay with Teen Vogue, we’ll just have to wait and see.
