Nathan Lump has been editor of Travel + Leisure for exactly one month, but he’s already making big changes to its editorial team. According to WWD, five staffers — including a web editor — have been cut by Lump.
A Time Inc. spokesperson wouldn’t confirm the layoffs for WWD. Instead, the spokesperson mentioned “change” twice, “redefining” and “leaving.” So yes, the cuts happened.
While Lump has cut five, he has added one — Jeffries Blackerby began his role as executive editor this past Monday. He joined from Condé Nast Traveler, where he served as deputy editor.
