Conde Nast closing Portfolio magazine

NEW YORK – Conde Nast is shuttering the business magazine Portfolio and its Web site, Portfolio.com, and laying off more than 80 people.

Portfolio launched in May 2007 as a glossy, high-end rival to business magazines such as Fortune, Forbes and BusinessWeek. Now the publisher says the May issue will be Portfolio’s last.

“The pressures and realities of the continuous deep economic slump have lowered Portfolio’s revenue projections below what is needed to continue publication,” Conde Nast Chief Executive Charles H. Townsend said in a statement.

Conde Nast has made other cuts across the company. Two months ago the publisher closed lifestyle magazine Domino.

Conde Nast, which also publishes such magazines as Vogue, The New Yorker and Wired, is a unit of privately held Advance Publications.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
