IPC Media in consultation to close Nuts

Nuts, the men’s weekly magazine and website, could be set to close as IPC Media has announced that it has entered into a 30-day consultation with staff.

IPC Inspire managing director Paul Williams said: “After 10 years at the top of its market, we have taken the difficult decision to propose the closure of Nuts and exit the young men’s lifestyle sector.

“IPC will provide impacted staff with all the support they need during the consultation process.”

The first issue of Nuts was published on 22 January 2004.

Last year, Hearst closed Zest magazine, while Bauer's More and Conde Nast's Easy living were also given the chop.
