Video Business publishes last issue

Jan. 4 issue was final for magazine

By VB staff -- Video Business, 1/6/2010

JAN. 6 | Video Business is ceasing publication this week, after 29 years of industry-leading coverage of the home entertainment business.

The Jan. 4 issue was the magazine’s last.

VB’s owner, Reed Business Information, is shuttering the magazine and its online operations, effective this week, as part of a larger, ongoing strategy to divest itself of most of its business-to-business publications in the U.S. The company also is closing MBT (Manufacturing Business Technology) and Industrial Distribution.

“I’m extremely proud of the role VB has played in the home entertainment industry, consistently breaking news, while providing important analysis and insight to our readers for almost three decades,” said Marcy Magiera, editor-in-chief and associate publisher. “Every staff member and regular contributor here is a first-class business journalist, and I will miss working with this smart, dedicated and caring group of people.”

VB readers can continue to get the latest home entertainment business and technology news at www.variety.com.
