Meredith Abandons Child, Keeps its Niños

After slashing sixty jobs from various reaches of the company, Meredith announced that it is discontinuing Child as a print publication, and incorporating it into a new web portal on Parenting. It acquired Child from Gruner + Jahr along with Spanish-language parenting publication Ser Padres in 2005.

However, unlike Child, Ser Padres continues to do well and will remain a print entity for the foreseeable future, according to sources inside the company. Meredith is also considering the inclusion of its Spanish-language content in the soon-to-be-launched portal, but right now their digital expansion is focused on their general market content.

Besides Ser Padres, Meredith also publishes Spanish-language parenting magazines Espera, 12 Meses, and Healthy Kids en español. These magazines will remain unaffected by Child’s restructuring.
