We told you earlier about the new issue of D CEO magazine, whose cover story discloses a budget crunch at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and asks whether the issue’s cover boy–symphony CEO Doug Adams, pictured with conductor Jaap van Zweden–would be able to turn things around. The issue went online and was scheduled to be mailed to subscribers a week ago Wednesday. Almost a week later Adams quit, effective next month.
But somehow along the way, we just found out, most of the September issues never got delivered to the post office. Instead, drivers for Con-Way Freight somehow “lost” two-thirds of the 18,000, those in the know say. Then some “research” was done–after we asked what gives–and the issues were suddenly “found.” As of today the mags were “on the truck, being sent out,” they contend. No truth to the rumor that Doug was one of the drivers.
