Welcome! This week our roundup of interesting and noteworthy publishing industry stories focuses on why magazines will continue to decline despite signs of life for other print media, more layoffs at Yahoo, a new Dow Jones media group, the impact of content saturation, and more.
 
 
 
Consumer magazines will continue to struggle despite media spending predictions suggesting print is making a comeback. While newspapers are successfully "marrying" print and digital content, magazines haven't been able to make the same transition, reports say.

Yahoo will lay off at least 10% of its workforce in the coming weeks, according to sources. The cuts are expected to hit the company's media business particularly hard.

Dow Jones set up a new publishing group that will include Barron's, MarketWatch, Mansion Global, and potentially new brands. The unit, which notably will not include The Wall Street Journal, is expected to focus on video and collaboration projects with News Corp.

Today's content tsunami has brought the media industry to an inflection point, a report argues, noting that only those companies that sharpen their focus, adopt iterative practices, and invest in revenue innovation will survive the inevitable shakeout.
