Elle Girl US closes in print but stays online

[Keyword: ]. It used to be the case that when job cuts were to be made, website staff went first. Is it now the other way around? Possibly. Reflecting “the growing popularity of digital platforms among children and teenagers” (reports Journalism.co.uk), “US teen title Elle Girl is closing its print magazine after five years but continuing to publish online and to mobile subscribers.”

Meanwhile, in a curious coincidence, the latest Guardian Jobs features the following two vacancies in the UK:
