People Cuts 12, All You Publisher Out

It’s been a rough few days at Time Inc. headquarters. Ahead of the company spinning off from Time Warner on Friday, People has cut about 12 staffers — some layoffs, some buyouts — and All You’s founding publisher, Diane Oshin (pictured), is departing the company.

Regarding the reductions at People, a Time Inc. spokesperson told Ad Age “We are always looking for ways to improve efficiencies and bring in new skills sets to keep up with our changing business.” So you know, take that for whatever it’s worth.

As for Oshin — who most recently served as group publisher of All You and Cooking Light — a memo from Evelyn Webster, Time Inc.’s executive VP, said Oshin wanted to “explore new opportunities.”

For now, Webster will assume Oshin’s duties overseeing All You. Kevin White will take over as group publsher of Cooking Light, MyRecipes and Health.

Real Simple Debuts First App

Available for the iPad, iPhone and Android platforms, Real Simple is calling its app “No Time to Cook?” The new product features over 800 recipes that are designed to keep things, well, simple. The decade-old magazine from Time Inc. rose to popularity with that as its focus, and No Time to Cook?, according to Kevin White, Publisher of Real Simple, continues the simple-is-best theme:

More than 90 percent of Real Simple consumers say they don’t have enough time for themselves. Time is our consumers’ most valued commodity, which is why we know that No Time to Cook? will resonate with busy people everywhere.

Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausages is the app’s launch sponsor, so expect plenty of ads and maybe even a sausage pun or two that we really want to make but we won’t.
