'National Geographic Traveler' Ceases Publishing This Year

National Geographic Traveler will stop publishing the U.S. edition of the magazine after the December/January issue.

Content from 35-year-old bimonthly publication will be folded into the flagship National Geographic magazine, which will continue to be available in print in the U.S., according to Variety, which first reported the news.

A National Geographic spokesperson told Publishers Daily the magazine brand will lean into travel content on its digital platforms, develop travel content for National Geographic magazine, publish travel-themed special issues and support the other 17 local language editions of National Geographic Traveler magazine. 

Variety reports as many as 80 National Geographic employees could be affected by the changes.

In March, Disney took over parent company National Geographic Partners as part of its acquisition of 21st Century Fox. 

Last August, Condé Nast combined the U.S. and U.K. content creation teams of Condé Nast Traveller under its British division. 

While there are still two separate print editions, content for both are now overseen by Condé Nast Britain.
