Merci CB News!

As many of you may know, last thursday the court of Nanterre decided that the french magazine CB News would not exist anymore. It is very sad news for all those who love advertising in France.

Even though i have not been in advertising for long i used to read it and i really liked getting their newsletters with the latest news.

For those who were not familiar with CB News. It was a weekly magazine about advertising and communication. It was created in 1986 by Christian Blanchas (the man who also appears in Culture Pub).

CB News was an independent media this was also one of the main reasons why the magazine disappeared (not enough financial support).

As many french bloggers are paying tributes to this magazine i would also like to say thank you to all the people who worked on this magazine for the past 24 years and i wish them all the best so they can find a new job very soon.

Remy Deveze (who also worked on the magazine) made this video to remember old times.

FrenchiesParty is throwing a big “Au revoir” party for those who feel like saying goodbye to the magazine. 25 november at 22:30 at the VIP Room in Paris. There will be the DJ’s PACO, FANNY TWIN, Cedric Couvez and more.
