D-Day At NYT, More Info Emerges On Buyouts

nyt logo.jpgToday is the deadline for New York Times staffers to accept or reject the buyout offers that went out in October. We’ve been keeping our ear to the ground for information about who has agreed to take the buyouts, just as last Friday executive editor Bill Keller asked staffers in a memo to reconsider the offers in order to avoid more layoffs at the company later this month. The paper has to cut about 100 staffers before the end of the year, but Keller said in the memo he was “almost certain the number [of buyouts] will fall short of the 100 we need.”

There’s already news surfacing about those who have agreed to take buyouts. Politico‘s Michael Calderone says at least five D.C. reporters will be leaving the paper, Neil Lewis, Stephen Labaton, David Johnston, David Stout and, newly reported today, Edmund Andrews.

The New York Post‘s Keith Kelly also said veteran business reporter Geraldine Fabrikant and metro reporter Ralph Blumenthal would be among those taking the buyout. Today, The Business Insider reported that Louis Uchitelle, Alex Berenson and Jonathan Glater would also be leaving the Times.

Gawker has a longer, unconfirmed list here.
