Memo Pad: Numbers, Please... Over the Hill... Ashton Rocks Out...

Portfolio has published six issues since its debut in April, but so far, the jury remains out on whether consumers are reading the Condé Nast business title.

BIG MOVES: Could KCD's Bonnie Morrison be jumping to the other side of the aisle? There's speculation the well-respected fashion publicist will be joining Men's Vogue in some capacity. Morrison has been at KCD since April 2006 and worked on accounts including the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Neither Morrison nor a spokeswoman for Men's Vogue could be reached for comment by press time. — S.D.S.

DOES NOT APPLY: The staff at BusinessWeek is safe, at least for now, from further job cuts. On Tuesday, The McGraw-Hill Cos. Inc. said it would cut 3 percent of its staff, leading some to wonder how that would affect its business title. A source close to the magazine said the 12 or so people that were let go last month, which was reported by WWD, count as part of that 3 percent. Moreover, the decision to lay off BusinessWeek staffers last month "was an action decided during the fourth quarter," so Tuesday's announcement by McGraw-Hill will have no further bearing on the magazine. — Amy Wicks
