CQ Roll Call’s VP of Marketing William Kiniry has been given his official walking papers today. As part of a vast reconfiguring of the business side of the publication, heads are dropping and he has been laid off.
Expect more to come. Next up on the chopping block: the sales team.
Fortunately for Kiniry, he is quickly moving on. Sources tell us he has already secured a job at WaPo. We’re told Kiniry informed his staff that CQRC “let him go” as in, cut his position, but wanted him to stay and consult through the transition and he said “no thanks” and left.
We’ve written CQ Roll Call for comment. A publicist says they don’t comment on personnel matters. We’ve also written Kiniry. So far, mum.
