1) Suckling, Laube and Kramer gone.
Suckling gone was a big positive for WS IMO. He was hard to read and worse to watch on video. Laube is still there but not on the main Napa tasting beat anymore if I read that correctly. I’m not much of a Napa guy so no impact and Kramer gone is a lose for some but neutral for me. I think WS is still doing fine. It’s a lifestyle mag that I still see at every office, spa, car, airport, waiting room/lounge I go to.
The forum activity is down without question and the customers have spoken on the layout. A lot of folks complained about the last time the site changed, but activity didn’t slow. This time there has been a real drop off no doubt.
