Summit Business Media Suspends Publishing of Mortgage Originator Magazine

Summit Business Media has suspended publication of its monthly financial title Mortgage Originator magazine. The June 2009 issue is the last issue that will be published. The magazine, launched in 1991 by Pfingsten Publishing and then acquired by Windpoint Partners/Summit Business Media in November 2006, was created to provide practical and insightful sales and marketing content for mortgage brokers, retail loan officers, lenders and other mortgage lending professionals. Summit made the decision based on concerns about its viability in current market conditions.

John Whelan, Senior Vice President of Summit, said, "Mortgage Originator is a strong brand that was an established part of our portfolio, but it's been caught in the eye of the storm in terms of the worsening economic conditions. The readership of the magazine has been impacted heavily." Summit has formed a partnership with fellow trade publisher SourceMedia in which Source has acquired certain rights associated with Mortgage Originator. The partnership allows Source Media, which publishes Origination News magazine, to fulfill Mortgage Originator's subscriptions and take on its advertisers through the end of the year.
