‘Computerworld’ trims editorial staff

Published on .

In a clear sign of the continuing recession in tech and b-to-b media, Computerworld, an International Data Group publication, confirmed Wednesday it reduced its editorial staff by seven people. This latest staff reduction - seven other positions were eliminated in August 2001 - brings the number of editorial staffers to 61, a nearly 20% reduction since last year. As a whole, IDG publications' ad pages were off nearly 50% in 2001 compared with 2000, although much of that can be attributed to the closing of Industry Standard, according to data supplied by CMR’s Adscope. Maryfran Johnson, VP-Editor in Chief of Computerworld, said she expected "no additional" job cuts in the foreseeable future. She said that readers and advertisers would see no material difference, either online or in print. "Computerworld is a strong brand that will survive this downturn," Johnson declared.
