MEDIA: Condon selected to edit 'news hub' for VNU Business

VNU Business Publications has appointed Ron Condon as editor of its

'news hub'.



The IT journalist launched the operation, in which a single news team

produces stories for four titles and a website, this week.



VNU's corporate computing titles publishing director, Tony Loynes, said:

'It is unlikely the four publications and the website will use the same

story. (They will) use the relevant quotes and cut out the others.'



The move, which VNU admits is part of its cost-cutting measures, has

been in the pipeline for a year.



Loynes said the idea of magazines from the same group competing with

each other was 'largely an outdated notion. We are pushing against the

external market. We have almost no overlaps in our circulation'.



The hub provides news for Computing, Computer Reseller News, Network

News, IT Week and VNU.net. Larger titles such as Computeractive and

Personal Computer World continue as usual.
