Joyce Wadler Accepts New York Times Buyout

Joyce Wadler is the latest big name to take the buyout package being offered by the New York Times. The New York Observer reports that Wadler’s decision was announced in an internal memo today. Wadler, who has been with the Times for many years, plans to pursue humor writing.

Wadler joins Jonathan Landman and Jacques Steinberg, both of whom took the buyout offer that Jill Abramson was “begging and pleading” some of the Times’ top editors to accept.

The deadline for editors to make their decisions (or else) is January 24.
