Media Brain Trust: Death watch edition


The recession has already claimed its share of media properties, but, while the economy may or may not have touched bottom already, nobody who knows anything about anything thinks the closures are about to stop. The only question is: Who's next?

As a veteran of two high-profile media casualties (Radar and Condé Nast Portfolio), I have a particularly keen interest in this question. So, to shed some light on it, I've assembled what shall forthwith be known as the Media Brain Trust: a group of several dozen editors in chief, publishers, producers, developers, executives, consultants and others whose views about what's going on in the media industry I've found to be especially astute over the years.

I put the question to them: What media brands do you expect to see disappear in the next 12 months or so?
