Jobs slashed at Livres Hebdo, as French trade weekly goes digital-only

French book trade publication Livres Hebdo is to undergo a restructure, shifting the balance of its print and digital offering, and cutting editorial staff roles. The new structure will see the weekly Livres Hebdo magazine become 100% digital and will involve "the abolition of several editorial posts and the increase in contributions entrusted to outside expert journalists", owner Electre SA said.

Electre said the publication's restructure - made "in order to adapt to changes in customer demand and restore its economic balance" - would be effective by the end of August 2020.
