Soap Opera Magazines Brace for Layoffs After ABC Soap Cancellations

Apr 15, 2011  •  Post A Comment

The ripple effect from ABC’s cancellation of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" has hit the publishing business as Source Interlink, which publishes Soap Opera Digest and Soap Opera Weekly, is expected to drastically reduce its staff, reports the New York Post.

The staffs of both magazines are expected to be cut as the publisher turns over operations of the publications to American Media Inc., owner of National Enquirer and Shape, in a licensing agreement.

AMI is expected to move the magazines away from soap coverage with specials planned on Kim Kardashian and TV shows such as Bravo’s "Real Housewives of Orange County."
