As part of major restructuring effort to realign with the shift of advertising dollars away from print and towards internet-based marketing by its advertisers, CMP Technology, a division of United Business Media and based in the UK, is consolidating EE Times' and TechOnline's editorial teams.

In a recent announcement from United Business Media, 200 jobs at CMP have been lost, including some senior editors across its electronic titles and operations in general. This is the most recent of a series of job losses and restructuring within CMP.

"The EE Times brand will continue its focus on the delivery of breaking news but the collection and distribution of that information must reflect the demands of the digital communications world.  Beginning immediately, the news, news management, and news analysis function is first and foremost an online function," said Wallace.  "CMP is transitioning rapidly to bring TechOnline, DesignLines, EE Times, Tech Paper Library, eetimes.com, eetimes.eu - the U.S., Europe and our entire media sphere - into better alignment with new and emerging opportunities for our global readers and our
customers."

As part of the changes and broad shift towards greater emphasis on online editorial and marketing initiatives, several editorial management shuffles have been made.

Junko Yoshida, formerly executive editor, news, will now become editor-in-chief of EE Times. His main responsibility will be to manage news coverage on a global basis.

Patrick Mannion, formerly managing editor, has been named editor-in-chief of TechOnline and is responsible for DesignLines, eeProductCenter, Tech Paper Library and all TechOnline content operations.  

Bolaji Ojo, the former editor-in-chief of Electronic Supply & Manufacturing magazine, has been named business editor of EE Times and will focus on developing the business section that was launched earlier this year.

The weekly print editions of EE Times in the U.S. and the regional editions in Europe, Japan, China and Asia will continue to be published, though the electronic version will count for 30,000 of its audited circulation while print will be pegged at 100,000.

The weekly content for EE Times Design and Product sections will be produced by a team of TechOnline technical editors, the company said.

Interestingly, a new EE Times Intelligence Unit will be established and led by Loring Wirbel, Senior Analyst, to focus on specialized market research reports that will be available for sale only.
