Nielsen sells Mediaweek

Nielsen Business Media announced today that they are selling seven publications, including Mediaweek, Adweek and Brandweek, as well as Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter.

It’s unlikely that the due-diligence surfaced my pet peeve about (non-) delivery of Mediaweek. Still, I’m hoping that the new owners take a closer look at the delivery crews using rubber bands to fasten magazines to door handles in midtown Manhattan.

On a related note, the delivery service spot-glued a “holiday gratuity” envelope into this week’s copy of Mediaweek, which is published on Mondays and came on Wednesday. I’m still thinking about what to do with that.
