American Angler Editor Loses Job in Morris Cuts

Morris Communications is cutting 12% of their magazine jobs, and Phil Monahan — who edited American Angler for almost ten years and was largely responsible for a long uptrend in readership — is one of the casualties. Morris, which publishes 13 daily newspapers and owns outdoor book publishers Lyons Press and Globe Pequot, as well as Fly Tyer and Gray’s Sporting Journal, is swimming in the same dangerous waters as other newspaper publishers who are having a hard time meeting debt obligations.
Steve Walburn, the Morris Magazine Group general manager who will take over editorial responsibilities at American Angler, said yesterday that Monahan’s departure “is not a reflection on Phil, his job performance, or the magazine content.”
