App Publisher magazine relaunch issue released – with TNM partnering; DOJ will not to prosecute Murdoch for hacking

Emmis Publishing shuffles the deck at Texas Monthly and Cincinnati magazines as Elynn Russell announces retirement after 37 years at the magazine

The digital-only magazine App Publisher has been relaunched today with the release of the January-February issue. The magazine, edited and published by Paul Blake, will now be published six times a year and is being published in partnership with Talking New Media.

AP-iPad-coverWhile the magazine is currently only available through the Apple Newsstand, and can be read on both the iPad and iPhone, the app will soon be available through Google Play. Single issues are priced at $2.99/£2.29, and readers can subscribe for a year for $9.99/£7.99 a year. Current readers who signed up for a monthly subscription have not been left behind and can continue with their current arrangement (and best of all, the price has been dropped).

There will be much more on the relaunch of App Publisher today and through this week here at TNM.

Rupert Murdoch has avoided another round of court battles involving his company’s hacking activities in the UK. The U.S. Department of Justice informed his companies that they are off the hook.

“21st Century Fox and News Corp have been notified by the United States Department of Justice that it has completed its investigation of voice mail interception and payments to public officials in London, and is declining to prosecute either company,” Gerson Zweifach, chief general counsel for the two companies, wrote in a statement.

The news comes just as the Presidential election cycles is beginning and Murdoch has taken to Twitter to inject himself into the race.

Texas_Monthly-Jan07Elynn Russell, President of Texas Monthly, has announced she will retire effective March 1st after 37 years at the magazine. Emmis Publishing, owner of Texas Monthly, has named John Lunn, currently public of Cincinnati, to replace Russell.

Ivy Bayer, Director of Advertising at Cincinnati, has been named to replace Lunn.

Texas Monthly Publisher, Amy Updegrove, appears to have been passed over in the moves and is leaving the company.

Texas Monthly has a circulation of just over 300,000, with only 1.6 percent of which is currently digital.
