Creative Loafing Papers Cut Pay, Staffers

Creative Loafing, the company that owns the Chicago Reader, City Paper, and Creative Loafing Atlanta, has announced cuts in staffing and pay at the three papers.

At CL Atlanta, four positions were let go. The paper is saying farewell to managing editor/digital and food critic Besha Rodell, staff writer Scott Henry, arts writer Curt Holman, and special projects director (and former managing editor) Chanté LaGon.

At the Washington City Paper, some employees had their hours reduced to part-time, but no staffers were cut. At all three papers, everyone got a 5% pay cut.

Washington City Paper publisher Amy Austin said that she was looking for a new owner, preferably local, for the paper, Poynter’s Andrew Beaujon (himself a City Paper veteran) reports.
