Exchange and Mart to cease print publication

Weekly classified car magazine Exchange & Mart is to become an online only publication as of February, according to Brand Republic.

The publication of the magazine will cease completely, leading to about 80 redundancies. The final issue will be published in February 2009.

The Newsquest owned title had run into trouble as the internet is now the most popular medium for publishing classified adverts.

Frank McCaffrey, managing director of Exchange & Mart, said: “This move is a natural evolution for Exchange & Mart and marks the beginning of a new era for the brand. It is also very much a trend being followed by the publishing world as a whole.”
