[MedienKrise] Aus die Maus: Vanity Fair wird eingestellt

18. Februar 2009 | by TechFieber.de

german vanity fair street ad by nayrb7.Die Hochglanzpostile „Vanity Fair“ ist gescheitert – das Magazin wird eingestellt. Dies bestätigte der Verlag Condé Nast gegenüber Kress.de sowie HORIZONT.NET.

Bitter: Das Ende kommt nun, obwohl Jonathan Newhouse, Chef von Condé-Nast International, dem deutschen „Vanity Fair“-Team erst vor kurzem vollmundig versicherte, dass der Verlag auf alle Fälle an dem Titel festhalten werde.

Hier nun die Erklärung, die Jonathan Newhouse diesbezüglich heute abgab:

Vanity Fair Germany

It is my sad duty to announce that Vanity Fair Germany will close after the
current
issue.

It is a shock when an excellent magazine is closed and particularly so in
the case of
Vanity Fair Germany. Only eleven weeks ago I publicly vowed that Condé Nast
would
continue to publish Vanity Fair in spite of difficulties. But the world is
changing rapidly
and in ways for which no one can be truly prepared. The global economy has
been
plunged into a crisis of historic proportions. Media owners, such as the US
based
parent organisation of Condé Nast Germany, today face very serious business
challenges ­ difficulties which could not have been foreseen even a short
time ago.
In a normal economic climate, we would have bravely carried on publishing
Vanity
Fair. In today¹s bleak economic climate, it is impossible.

Vanity Fair Germany was an outstanding publication which made an important
journalistic contribution, and the journalists and professionals who
produced it can
take pride in what they created. In business, as in life, there are
victories and there
are defeats. We did our best.
