E&P in Exile: "I am out as editor after eight years, and the great Joe Strupp as senior editor."Greg Mitchell says on
The Nielsen Co. announced the closure of E&P just before Christmas. It had been "the bible of the newspaper industry" and was 125 years old, one of America's oldest magazines.
Mark Fitzgerald has been named named as E&P's new editor. He was formerly E&P's editor-at-large.
"I'm of course grateful to Duncan for stepping up to keep E&P alive, and I've been extremely impressed by the passion and energy he is bringing to this enterprise," Fitzgerald said. "I'm humbled to be leading a news organization that I've always believed produces one of the best news reports of any industry sector."
E&P's new owners announced plans to publish a February print issue and continue the magazine's monthly print publication schedule. Online reporting on its website has resumed.
