Erik Torkells Leaving Budget Travel
A Jaunted Exclusive
Erik Torkells, the editor of Budget Travel, will leave his magazine on July 15, a tipster tells us:
ET is leaving BT... without a new project lined up. I bet he was asked to leave. The July issue was only like 85 pages.
Actually, the July/August issue has 92 pages. But that doesn't mean Torkells is sticking around. Says the man himself:
I am indeed leaving. It's been a great run, and BT has come farther than I'd ever hoped. But I like to leave a party when it's still fun, and I wanted to go out on top--in the wake of being a National Magazine Award finalist.
