Everything Channel Shutters VARBusiness
Content, research to be folded into CRN magazine.
United Business Media’s Everything Channel announced Friday that it is folding VARBusiness into CRN magazine.
According to Everything Channel CEO Robert Faletra, publishing two print products in a market that “can be served by one big brand like CRN” no longer “makes sense.”
As part of the merger, and the company’s “ongoing realignment,” Everything Channel has eliminated 10 positions company-wide, a spokesperson told FOLIO:. (Everything Channel employs roughly 200 people.) No editorial positions were affected.
VARBusiness’ State of the Market, State of Technology Reports, VARBusiness 600, Partner Program Guide and Annual Report Card will be folded into CRN. VARBusiness subscribers who wish to receive CRN will be placed on a waiting list, the company said.
Everything Channel Events will continue to produce the VARBusiness 500 and the Annual Report Card awards ceremony.
Serving the indirect technology sales channel, CRN was launched 30 years ago and carries a controlled circulation of 115,000. VARBusiness carried a controlled circulation of 110,000.
