Editor & Publisher and Kirkus Reviews To Close After Failed Attempts To Sell

Nielsen Business Media sold off Adweek, Brandweek, Mediaweek, The Clio Awards, Backstage, Billboard, Film Journal International & The Hollywood Reporter. No one seemed interested in Editor & Publisher since it covers an industry that's dying. :/

A bit about Kirkus:

Wiki: Kirkus Reviews

If you read SiFi/Fantasty, Kirkus is one of the consistent sources for "reviewer blurbs" on covers and inside. It's a genre that didn't always get newspaper and magazine reviews, but Kirkus invested time in reviewing the genre. The book I'm reading right now has a Kirkus blurb on the back.

It's a bit sad to see it seen as obsolete that it doesn't even have an online business model chance. Of course there are reviews-o-plenty all over the net. But... sad.
