Billboard closing London office
By CMU Editorial | Published on Tuesday 14 December 2010
US music industry trade magazine Billboard has announced it is closing down its London office with all UK-based staff to be let go. It’s all part of efforts by the magazine’s newish private equity backed owner E5 Global Media to make the publishing business add up, and is another sign the company’s focus, despite its name, is mainly on the North American market.
The title’s former Global Editor Emmanuel Legrand has written a blog post documenting the decline of the once truly global music business magazine, which is worth a read.
