Gourmet Budget Cuts Confirmed, Frequency Reductions Likely
Poor Ruth Reichl. The Observer reports this morning that the rumored budget cuts and frequency reductions for Gourmet are most likely taking effect. Along with Details, Traveler, Glamour and Teen Vogue, the magazine will need to cut its budget by a whopping 25% for next year. And given their less-than-stellar ad page haul, Gourmet seems to be "a prime candidate" for frequency reductions: expect it to cut down to ten or possibly even eight issues per year, instead of their current twelve.
