Condé Starts To Purge

4timessquare.jpgThe cost-cutting continues at Condé Nast.

Several months ago, the magazine publisher laid off a slew of receptionists in an effort to slash costs, but some remained on the editorial floors at 4 Times Square. But those jobs that were salvaged then are now gone, after Condé let 13 receptionists go, the New York Observer reported. A Gawker tipster corroborated the story claiming that the Glamour‘s receptionist was gone as of Monday. The New York Post puts the number of employees dismissed from Condé’s “editorial desk and receptionist pool” at nine

The Post‘s Keith Kelly also reported that Condé Nast had dismissed “jack-of-all-trades” Charles Stanley Ledbetter from The New Yorker. But that seem like another case of Kelly getting it wrong, as Gawker reports that a New Yorker rep said Ledbetter has been kept on staff in an editorial position.
