Another Times Buyout: Magazine Editor Paul Tough

tough.jpgWe learned from a guild memo to New York Times staffers yesterday that 74 editorial staffers have taken the buyout offers provided by the company.

And now, The New York Observer reports that New York Times Magazine editor Paul Tough is among those who said goodbye to the Times yesterday. (Gawker has even more names.)

Tough joined the paper eight years ago, and was previously an editor at Harper’s and a reporter and producer for the public radio show “This American Life.” Like other Times buyout-takers, Tough is an author. He recently published Whatever It Takes: Geoffrey Canada’s Quest to Change Harlem and America.
