Trojan Publishing’s monthly men’s lifestyle magazine, Switched On, has closed days before the third issue hits the shelves, leaving the six editorial staff redundant.
The decision to axe the title was thought to have been made by the shareholders, not by management, as the title was losing the company money.
Sports editor Terry Daley said the staff are not bitter about the situation, as they were given a good redundancy package, and he felt the company had been upfront with the editorial team. He said: “We knew the situation when it started, if it didn’t make money we knew we’d be out. That was pretty much the situation; it didn’t make them the money it was supposed to, so they cut their losses.”
