According to WWD, the economic downturn has taken another casualty in the publishing world. On Tuesday, Hearst
Magazines said it would fold its three-year-old women’s weekly Quick &
Simple, effective with the July 29 issue. The company’s statement read, "Due to market conditions and significantly escalating paper costs, it has
become increasingly challenging to produce a low-cost, low-priced weekly." About 40 staffers will be affected by the publication’s close.
However, on a hopeful note, the company will keep the weekly’s website, QuickandSimple.com. Guess they’ll have to change the motto from "Buy It Weekly, Visit Daily" to just, "Visit Daily… Please?"
