IRVINE, Calif. – Newspaper trade magazine Editor & Publisher was sold to an Irvine-based trade show company and publisher of boating and fishing magazines Thursday.
Online reporting on the Editor & Publisher Web site and blogs resumed immediately after the sale to Duncan McIntosh Co. Inc., two weeks after the Nielsen Co. shut down both the Internet and monthly print editions.
The media trade magazine, which has covered the newspaper industry for more than 100 years, did not provide any details on the terms of the transaction.
A message left with Duncan McIntosh seeking comment on the sale was not immediately returned Thursday night. The company produces boat shows in California and publishes Boating World, Sea Magazine, The Log Newspaper and FishRap.
