Village Voice Fires Michael Musto, Robert Sietsema and Michael Feingold

When two of The Village Voice‘s top editors quit rather than downsize staffers, it was only a matter of time before those layoffs transpired. The cuts involved three big names. According to Gawker, Michael MustoRobert Sietsema and Michael Feingold have all been let go.

Christine Brennan, executive editor of the Village Voice Media Group, oversaw the reductions, which included some on the business side of the Voice. She was also the one asking Will Bourne, the Voice’s last editor, to fire or reduce the roles of staffers.

Musto had been writing for the Voice since the early 1980s; Sietsema since the early 90s; and Feingold since the late 90s. When a paper just fires three of their most iconic writers, you know things are bad.
