Slowly but surely, The New York Times is shrinking. In a memo to staff, Times executive editor Dean Baquet announced that the Times’ Home section was shuttering because its contents “would fit best in other parts of the Times, including Food and Real Estate.”
For the Times’ Home section writers, the writing was on the wall (terrible pun intended) when about 10 staffers were laid off during the last round of cuts. The New York Post reports that Noel Millea, the section’s editor, will take on a different role when Home’s last edition runs Thursday.
Home is the second long-running section the Times has shuttered in the last few months. In November of last year, the paper eliminated the Auto section.
