Fairfax Magazines will resign the licences, owned by IDG, to publish Computerworld,and sister publications Reseller News and PC World early next month.
The decision has been made to close the print and websites of the titles under the Fairfax banner as the wider group adapts to changes driven by the current economic climate in publishing worldwide, says Fairfax Magazines general manager Lynley Belton. IDG has signalled it plans to continue serving the New Zealand market with its global brands and products, and will announce its plans shortly. Belton has thanked those who have worked on the titles during the time they have been part of Fairfax Magazines. “We are proud to have been associated with all three titles for the last seven years and would like to thank staff, both past and present, who have contributed to quality IT journalism during that time,” says Belton. All subscribers will be contacted and refunded for issues they will not receive. The final dates of publication are: Computerworld July 1, Reseller News July 5 and PC World July 1.
