Conde Nast's Townsend on Why Gourmet Was Shut Down
"It was operating as a burden. In the middle of this decade it was a profitable business, but having two of those businesses did not help the situation. And the dominant business -- particularly with the consumer -- is Bon Appetit, which emerged as the considerably stronger business."
