'L.A. Times' Folding Sunday Magazine
The Los Angeles Times will cease publication of LA, its Sunday magazine, after the June 3 issue. The pub had a monthly schedule, though until 2009 it came out weekly.
However, the paper "is developing a quarterly publication focusing on luxury, fashion and style," writes Alana Semuels. That move is in line with the trend of targeting the luxury lifestyle market evident in such newspaper magazines as the New York Times' T and the Wall Street Journal's WSJ.
Meanwhile, the Sunday New York Times article on ad agencies referenced in this week's episode of "Mad Men" actually jumped to a page numbered something like 172 -- a sign of a previous, print-friendly era, as one commenter wrote on a blog recapping the episode.
