Editor & Publisher (E&P) is a monthly magazine covering the North American newspaper industry. It is based in New York City. E&P calls itself "America's Oldest Journal Covering the Newspaper Industry" and describes itself on its website as "the authoritative journal covering all aspects of the North American newspaper industry, including business, newsroom, advertising, circulation, marketing, technology, online and syndicates."[1]

E&P's website is updated daily with breaking news. The magazine is currently edited by Ed Zintel, who took over the reins from Kristina Ackermann in June 2013. In recent years the magazine has won numerous national awards, including several for its stories on coverage of the Iraq war.

The publication dates back to 1884, when The Journalist, its weekly predecessor, was founded. Editor & Publisher was born 17 years later and merged with The Journalist in 1907. E&P later acquired Newspaperdom, a trade journal for the newspaper industry that started in 1892. In 1927, E&P merged with another trade paper, The Fourth Estate.[2] E&P was edited by Robert U. Brown from 1953 to 1999.[3]

E&P was purchased in 1999 by VNU Business Media, later renamed the Nielsen Company, which also published Billboard, Adweek, Mediaweek, The Hollywood Reporter and many other business-to-business magazines.[2]

A 2001 survey of 350 newspapers in six states indicated that copy editors and their supervisors were more likely to read E&P than any other magazine in the journalistic trade press, with 80.6% of copy editors and 90.6% of supervisors reporting that they read it either regularly or occasionally.[4]

In December 2009, unable to find a buyer, owner Greg Mitchell was replaced by Mark Fitzgerald, the journal's editor-at-large, and staffer Joe Strupp was also eliminated.

In October 2010, Mark Fitzgerald, Shawn Moynihan and Jim Rosenberg were laid off and replaced with employees from elsewhere in Duncan McIntosh Co.[9]
