A Condé Nast spokeswoman writes in an e-mail, “Men’s Vogue will be absorbed into Vogue and published in the spring and fall, it was announced today by Charles H. Townsend, President and C.E.O of Condé Nast Publications. It will continue to be edited by Jay Fielden.”
Earlier today, we reported that Condé Nast execs have been figuring out what to do with Men’s Vogue at a time when the entire company is going through cutbacks. They were considering folding it, but decided to eliminate its staff and reduce its publishing schedule from 10 issues a year to two issues a year.
A source at Condé Nast said the only reason it exists in any form is “nothing more than for Anna to save face.”
