We hear Wired had its own round of editorial layoffs today. What's going on at Conde Nast? A very bad Monday. In a very bad month. Let's review:
- WIRED: Wired.com laid off two top editors earlier this month. Today, tipsters tell us "at least six people" were canned at Wired—a mix of editorial and ad sales employees, including at least one veteran editor.
- Glamour: At least a half dozen editorial layoffs today. This follows at least seven business side layoffs there earlier this month, including a reality TV star.
- Lucky: At least four editorial layoffs today.
Today seems to have been the day when the ax started swinging on the editorial side. The wave of layoffs over the last two weeks hit mostly business side staffers: Ten at W magazine, six at Vanity Fair, at least two at Self, at least ten at the golf magazines, six at Vogue, more than a dozen at Brides.
If you don't work at the New Yorker, be nervous.
UPDATE: Then again—a tipster tells us "at least 7 people let go from ad sales and creative services over the past 3 weeks" at the New Yorker. But uh, editorial side should be perfectly safe.
