"Jane" Magazine Closes

4th\SE Quadrant The Year-End Mega Matrix

Conde Nast closed down Jane magazine after a 10-year run. The fashion and beauty publication targeted women in their 20s.

The last issue was published August by Conde Nast, which also closed down the magazine's associated Web site.

"We worked diligently to make Jane a success. However, we have come to believe that the magazine and Web site will not fulfill our long-term business expectations," Conde Nast Publications Chief Executive Charles Townsend said in a statement.

Jane, which has struggled with depressed advertising, was founded in 1997 by Jane Pratt. In 2005, Pratt left the magazine.
