The restructuring of the two electronics industry magazines includes an unspecified number of job cuts, according to Paul Miller, president of CMPâs electronics group.
The move follows the combining of the magazinesâ sales staffs last year.
âThe two editors in chief can now draw on the 40 editors or journalists of EE Times and EBN,â Miller said.
The restructuring is simply a formal recognition of the convergence of information needed by the two distinct audiences of the publications, he said. The designers who read EE Times need more business information, and the buyers who read EBN need more technical information, Miller said.
In the first five months of this year, EE Timesâ ad pages declined 20.5% compared with the same period last year. In the same time period, EBNâs ad pages declined 33.6%.
