Masthead Web Site to Live On
Magazine serving Canadaâ€™s magazine industry to remain online.
Citing declining revenues, the publishers of Mastheadâ€”the magazine that for more than two decades covered the Canadian magazine industryâ€”this fall said the November/December issue would be its last. The Web site also was to shut down.
This week, Mississauga, Canada-based North Island Publishing said it will continue to produce the Web site, MastheadOnline, through 2009. Editor Marco Ursi will remain with the company and manage the siteâ€™s content.
Certain annual print features, including launch/closure round-ups and top 50 magazine company rankings, will now be published online, the publisher said.
North Islandâ€™s print industry products also include Graphic Monthly Canada magazine, PrintCan.com, The Estimatorsâ€™ and Buyersâ€™ Guide and the Print World event. For the graphic design industry, it produces Design Edge Canada, DesignEdgeCanada.com, Design Edge Express and the Design City show.
