Cambio Closes, Again

Cambio, the weekly publication founded by Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez, closed in May. Publisher Contendencia (see “Cambio relaunched...,” page 6, Portada® No. 6, November/December 2003) relaunched the publication after Editorial Televisa's unsuccessful run from June 2001 to March 2003. The weekly covered politics, technology, business, entertainment, culture, art and lifestyles. The Cambio trademark was acquired at the end of July by Editorial Mac, publisher of newspaper Diario DF. Cambio is expected to be relaunched at the end of August. Salvador Garcia Soto, a former Crónica and El Independiente journalist, will be the editor of the “new” publication. Meanwhile, the editorial team of Cambio took legal action against Contendencia arguing that the layoffs were unjustified and demanding payment of salaries.

...and Another Mexican Weekly Disappears.

Amura México Náutico ceased publication in July. The bimonthly magazine, published by Editorial Elementos, covered topics related to national and international navigation, yachts, sailboats, regattas, fishing tournaments, scuba diving, golf, general sports and tourism. Launched in 2001, the publication was distributed in airports, hotels, marinas and yacht clubs. MasterCard, Ermenegildo Zegna, Audi, Mont Blanc and Bale Marine were among its main advertisers.
