Report: Hearst Closing Down Oprah’s O at Home Magazine

oathome Report: Hearst Closing Down Oprahs O at Home MagazineLast night, Oprah Winfrey made her much-hyped guest appearance on NBC’s 30 Rock, playing herself. At one point, 30 Rock‘s Liz Lemon (played by star and showrunner Tina Fey), high on a tranquilizer, says to Ms. Winfrey, "I didn’t get my September issue of O Magazine. Do you have the number for subscriptions?"

If Ms. Lemon had a subscription to O‘s companion magazine, O at Home, she’ll have to wait a long time. Portfolio‘s Mixed Media blogger Jeff Bercovici is reporting that Hearst has folded the magazine. As Mr. Bercovici points out, this comes less than a month after the company also shuttered CosmoGirl! in October.

In other Hearst news, Gawker’s Hamilton Nolan is also reporting that Esquire is quietly laying off four editorial employees
