The New York Times Company Makes Corporate Cuts, Including Veteran George Freeman

Jim Romenesko is reporting that The New York Times Company has laid off a slew of people on the corporate side, including longtime lawyer George Freeman.

“Yes, there were non-newsroom layoffs announced Wednesday in corporate and business-side positions and this was to adjust to the changing business environment and maintain our financial health,” Corporate Communications Senior Vice President Robert Christie, told Romenesko.

Freeman had been with the Times company for just over 30 years, most recently working as Vice President and Assistant General Counsel. He told Romenesko that he was “saddened and shocked” to learn that he had been among the cuts.
