Premiere Shuts Down Its Print Edition

10142006111943It's a sad day for Premiere Magazine. Editor Peter Herbst and the staff have gotten their walking papers. The last issue will be April. Surviving for the moment is Premiere film critic Glenn Kenny, who will continue on with the staff of Premiere Online. He's web savvy and I hear that traffic is up.

French Premiere has another six months. Spain's Fotogramas continues to do well. When I was west coast editor of Premiere, I maintained that if Hachette Filipacchi would invest in the Premiere website, they could create a Hollywood portal with all that great celebrity content. Too bad.
