CMP's 'EE Times,' 'EBN' combining editorial staffs

Published on .

Manhasset, N.Y.--CMP Media said late Monday that it is combining the editorial staffs of EE Times and EBN.

The restructuring of the two electronics industry magazines includes an unspecified number of job cuts, according to Paul Miller, president of CMP’s electronics group.

The move follows the combining of the magazines’ sales staffs last year.

“The two editors in chief can now draw on the 40 editors or journalists of EE Times and EBN,” 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 Times’ ad pages declined 20.5% compared with the same period last year. In the same time period, EBN’s ad pages declined 33.6%.
