Lebhar-Friedman to buy Dowden
Lebhar-Friedman, the privately held parent of such B2B magazines for the retail industry as "Drug Store News" and "Chain Store Age," plans to buy Dowden Health Media. Dowden serves the medical world with newsletters and magazines such as "Contemporary Surgery." Dowden's journalists won't have to relocate to L-F's offices in New York City. According to a story in Folio magazine, Dowden will operate as a standalone subsidiary and will keep its offices in Montvale, N.J.
