O Magazine to Cease Publication


After 20 years in the magazine business Oprah Winfrey pulls the plug on the print version of O magazine...
 
According to reports O Magazine will cease printing after the December 2020 issue.

The move comes after a shake up at O's publisher, Hearst Communications, where the company president was recently forced to step down over of sexual harassment allegations.

O has a paid circulation of 2.2 million readers and is expected to go all digital.

It is not clear if Oprah or Hearst made the decision to jettison the paper mag.

Magazines are dying. In 10 years you will be lucky to find one on the shelf at all.

^^^Yep! Did you ever think?! They have 75yrs of Black American archives from Ebony, JET & Black Enterprise so they really can transition to digital.
Btw, Ebony Magazine just went bankrupt & apparently there's some fraud accusations & disputes on who can purchase the rights...

Thats more jobs lost. I like holding and looking through a good magazine. The next generation will not experience that.

@8:33 agreed. It was always weird to me that she continually published a magazine with her on each cover. I sideeye ANYONE who takes this path because (looking at you Ayesha Curry)

@9:26am ... Even if he didn’t raper her, he should not have allowed her to leave that room crying and upset. He was so damn arrogant that he wouldn’t consider her feelings and how it would impact him later on. Then he threw Shaq under the bus when questioned by the police (put all of Shaq’s business in the streets).

And don’t get me started on the way he treated his parents who gave him so much.

He was a low-life by any standard.

Eff him and Oprah, though I do appreciate Oprah having Obama’s back and her work with Ava Duvernay. Other than that she ain’t even a consideration.

It's not uncommon for C-level executives to get into trouble and get replaced. I don't understand why O Magazine has to cease business operations on account of its scandal-ridden president. If there isn't a cash flow issue, just pick another leader from the executive management labor pool.

O Magazine ain't Enron or Arthur Anderson Consulting. What gives?

On another note...

Why can't straight-haired Cocky-Asians maintain proper decorum in the workplace and leave their silly sexual innuendo, inappropriate jokes and uncivil behavior at home?

It doesn't. That just bad reporting.

2 different stories.

Sexual harassment has nothing to do with no one buying you magazine

Ain't nobody buying print magazine anymore. The era of celebrity worship is finished and over. They are all manufactured frauds.
