eMediaweekly Suspends Publication
Posted on February 5, 1999Mac Publishing, L.L.C. today announced the suspension of eMediaweekly, a weekly news publication covering multi-platform digital content creation.
eMediaweekly, formerly MacWEEK magazine, debuted on August 24, 1998 with a BPA-controlled circulation of 85,000 digital media managers across North America. eMediaweekly targeted digital media professionals who needed to multi-purpose content across multiple publishing platforms such as traditional print, the Web and multimedia. The newsweekly will cease publication with its February 1, 1999 issue.
"Computer publications across the industry had a difficult year in 1998 and we have seen indications 1999 will be no easier," said Mac Publishing, L.L.C. President/CEO and eMediaweekly Publisher Colin Crawford. "Although eMediaweekly, with its integrated editorial coverage of the entire digital media spectrum, launched with rave reviews from our readers, the digital publishing market isn't mature enough to sustain a newsweekly at this time."
Crawford added, "Our goal was to serve digital media managers with the level of in-depth, objective coverage of multi-platform products that they needed. I'm proud eMediaweekly was the first and only publication to do that."
