Hearst Cuts Two Online Editors

Some unfortunate news out of Hearst Magazines: Amina Akhtar, Elle.com’s executive editor, and Abby Gardner, digital director of Cosmopolitan, have both been let go.

Akhtar has been Elle’s executive online editor since May of last year. Prior to that she launched and edited FashionEtc.com, and before that spent four years as a fashion editor for New York.

Gardner had been digital director at Cosmo since last October. She was a site director at Marie Claire before that.

Mashable reports that more Hearst layoffs are on their way, so we’ve reached out to the publishing house for comment. We’ll update when we hear back.
