April 1 – April 8, 2010 Edition Former PW Publisher Buys Magazine

PWxyz, LLC, headed by former PW Publisher George Slowik, has purchased Publishers Weekly, including the website publishersweekly.com and Publishers Weekly Show Daily. The new company will retain all of PW’s editorial, art, and advertising employees and the magazine will remain headquartered in New York City. Cevin Bryerman will remain as publisher with Jim Milliot and Michael Coffey serving as co-editors. Slowik ran PW in the late 1980s and early 1990s, leading the publication to record profits despite a poor economy. John Poulin, CEO of PW’s former owner Reed Business Information, said, “Given George’s history with Publishers Weekly, we believe this will be a great match.”
