Meredith Closes ‘Country Home’ — Sheds 7% of Staff

January 9th, 2009

Projecting continued advertising weakness well into 2009, Meredith has closed its struggling shelter title Country Home and reduced its workforce by some 250 positions.  The publisher is also relocating the creative functions of Parents.com, which is based in Manhattan, and ReadyMade, based in Berkeley, Calif., to the corporate headquarters in Des Moines, in an additional cost-savings measure.  The New York Times Jan. 8, 2009
