St. Louis-Based HDA Inc. Turns Back Magazines

In a recent blog post, I took a look at the problems that HDA has been facing. A major debt restructuring has led to unsettling occurrences, such as HDA refusing 57,000 copies of a magazine with no explanation. Stranger still, HDA employees showed up to work on Monday to find the doors of their company closed. Bob Ketterer, HDA Inc.'s president, CEO and chairman,…

Print is Fighting Back. Who is Winning?

The future of print-its prognosis, really-was the topic of Forum Day at the Distripress Congress in Toronto, a day when industry luminaries gathered to share their views of our challenges and opportunities in the coming years.

John Cruickshank, publisher of the Toronto Star and president of Star Media Group, led with a keynote in which he told the assembled group,…

Hi Linda,

Thanks. Sherin did spread the word here at Yankee! I have no good pics of me but might have to dig one up because I really don't like my manly silhouette.

Hi Linda, it's an interesting concept. I'd like to explore this more fully to see what kind of dialog we can create about SOLUTIONS and some just for fun.
