Gourmet Magazine to Fold after 68 Years

New, 9 comments

In a print media shocker today Media Decoder reports that Conde Nast is shutting down Gourmet magazine, the almost 70 year-old glossy food mag.

The magazine has suffered a severe decline in ad pages, but the cut still comes as a shock. There was speculation that Conde Nast would close one of its food titles — Gourmet or Bon Appetit — but most bets were on the latter. Gourmet has a richer history than Bon Appetit, and its editor Ruth Reichl is powerful in the food world.

Sam Sifton has some parting words. >>
