Layoffs Hit New York Times

nyt logo.jpgAfter weeks of anticipation, yesterday was the day for layoffs at The New York Times. New York magazine’s Daily Intel blog and Gawker have both compiled lists of some of the layoff victims, but Times spokesperson Diane McNulty has reached out to both to tell them their lists are “in error.” So we don’t know who to believe.

We do know that, after an arbitrator’s ruling on Monday, at least 26 people were due to be laid off this week. But although the bad news is coming right before the holidays, the Times has agreed to keep its laid off staffers on the pay roll until December 23.

If you have any info about who got the axe yesterday, drop us a line or leave a comment in the box at right.
