Pink Slips Doled Out at The Daily As Former Tech Editor Reminisces

By now you’ve probably heard after two years, The Daily, the first news app for the iPad, is folding effective December 15.

According to the press release, its editor-in-chief, Jesse Angelo, will take the helm as publisher at the New York Post, and several staffers will switch to the newspaper as well.

Former tech editor Peter Ha revealed on Gizmodo:

“Troll all you want about News Corp — 90% of which is going to be wrong anyway — but a lot of good people were given pink slips today and that’s unfortunate. I imagine it’s going to suck to have to publish for another 12 days. I’m pouring one out for you, homies.” Read more

‘The Daily’ Lays Off One-Third of Staff

News Corp’s digital newspaper, The Daily, has met a not-so-sunny disposition. That is, 50 of its 170 employees will be let go as reported by All Things D.

This marks the 18-month point after the tablet newspaper initially launched.

As for people who will be impacted the most? Apparently it’s staffers who work on the editorial page and sports section. Pink slips will also be given to people who work on other parts of The Daily – this includes design and production employees.

Sports coverage will be provided by content partners and the Opinion section will be defunct. Opinion pieces and editorials will begin to appear in the news pages.
