The Condé Cuts Are (Hopefully) Over

Depending on how much you believe the powers that be, the layoffs at Condé Nast are finished. The New York Post reports that Chuck Townsend, CEO of Condé Nast, sent out a memo late yesterday afternoon saying that the waters have calmed:

Given the challenges of the US economy, this required difficult decisions, including the elimination of some staff positions. These changes have been communicated and while businesses must continually evolve, we expect no further announcements related to the 2013 business plans and staffing.

Celebration time! Well, until the next round of cuts come down the road.

In addition to what we learned yesterday, here’s a quick recap of the Condé cuts:

  • It looks like the total staffers dropped is around 60
  • Catherine Romano, senior executive editor at Glamor, was let go
  • Eight editorial staffers and three business staffers were cut from Self
  • Fairchild Fashion Media’s Marc Berger was let go
  • The New Yorker, Architectural Digest, Wired, Vanity Fair and Vogue kept their staff intact
