Nielsen to close Sales & Marketing Management

BtoBOnline is reporting that Nielsen Business Media is shutting down another of its magazines, this time Sales & Marketing Management.  Last week Nielsen sold off its food group to Stagnito Media. The group included once powerful brands Progressive Grocer, Convenience Store News and The Gourmet Retailer.

Late last year Nielsen announced that it would shutter Editor & Publisher and Kirkus Review after the company could not find a buyer for the properties after selling Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter. Eventually both titles were saved when buyers were found keep the brands alive.
