Salon.com Lays Off Six

salon2.jpgGawker is reporting that Salon.com has laid off six editorial staffers last week, or 20 percent of its edit department.

CEO Richard Gingras told Gawker’s John Cook that three editors, one writer, one photo editor and one producer were let go as the site prepares for a redesign.

“For several months we have been working on a redesign of our product, that we will launch this fall, and also a redesign of our underlying systems. We are moving away from a very traditional magazine production model and becoming more of a true Web publication, with a more direct publishing system. Moving forward, we are investing most in the writers and creative participants who can help us continue to attract the smart, discerning readers attracted to Salon.”
