The scene at Mangan Rains Ginnaven Holcomb is a bit different than that at the Roberts agency.

The firm says it was just a coincidence that it announced Craig Rains' departure the same day news hit of seven layoffs at MRGH. The timing leaves media watchers with a lot of unanswered questions.

Rains says he has "an opportunity to do some things that I wanted to do in the next step in my professional career." But things are tough all over.

MRGH says the layoffs reflect "softening economic conditions." Magazine Week, the news weekly of magazine publicity, claims that magazine advertising is down by almost 36 percent nationally.
