IDG Communications to shutter print ‘InfoWorld,’ fold content into webcentric publication

Published on .

Boston—IDG Communications has decided to shutter the print version of InfoWorld and fold the content into a Web-only publication. An IDG spokesman confirmed that April 2 will be the last issue print issue of InfoWorld (180,000 circ.), which was launched in 1980. The technology trade provided coverage and analysis to help IT professionals evaluate their buying decisions.

“It doesn’t make sense to continue the print when most readers and dollars are flowing to online and events,” said Howard Sholkin, director of communications and marketing programs at IDG. About 10 people, all of them from the print side, will be let go as a result of the change, Sholkin said. He added that IDG is hoping to place some of the people in other areas of the company.
