    Alexandra Steigrad, writing for WWD:


    The New York-based publisher, which has instilled a hiring freeze, will slash about 80 jobs, equal to a decrease of about 2.5 percent of its 3,000-person workforce. Budgets across departments are also expected to get a haircut, with the worst-performing divisions and magazines getting cuts of up to 20 percent.

    As part of that mandate, Condé is reducing the frequencies of most of its titles and will shutter Teen Vogue in print. Monthly titles Vanity Fair, Vogue, Wired and The New Yorker, which publishes weekly, will not see any frequency changes. Brides, which runs six times a year, will also continue at that publishing pace.

    oh, you went fast to the midnight land

    Well I guess I'll finally stop receiving Teen Vogue magazines in the mail that I never signed up for (I think they came from shopping at a store like Ulta or F21? I haven't even been a teen in 10 years). I did keep a few copies with cover stories I liked, though.

    What do you mean? Might have missed something.

    I feel terrible for those employees, actually started following Teen Vogue because of some of the really good articles they wrote last year. Disappointing.
