Condé Nast Shutters Four Titles

Condé Nast announced the closure of four titles Monday—Gourmet, Cookie, Elegant Bride and Modern Bride—in a move that follows weeks of speculation about what the publisher would decide after consulting work by McKinsey & Co.

Gourmet was 70 years old.

A memo to Condé staffers from CEO Chuck Townsend did not indicate whether more magazine closures or layoffs are coming.
