Fears for Diapason after editor leaves

We hear that Gaetan Naulleau has left Diapason after the French music magazine was sold by Mondadori to Reworld Media.

Others have also quit and there is speculation that the niche magazine may not fit Reworld’s commercial portfolio.

The new owners reportedly assumed that it was a hi-fi equipment magazine.

Naulleau is said to have undertaken an academic thesis.

UPDATE: Editor says Diapason is alive and well

    the pic on the cover must have been expensive ..

  • The View from America says:

    One wonders why the acquiring firm didn’t check out a few back issues of the magazine to understand what they were actually purchasing.

    Then again … of course they did.

    So this is likely an example of over-hyped reportage. How come we are not surprised?

  • Mike Schachter says:

    An excellent magazine. Typical of current dumbing down that the people who bought it didn’t know what it was about.
