UPDATE: More Layoffs After BusinessWeek Cuts Two Senior Writers

UPDATE: A total of 25 staffers are being cut from Bloomberg BusinessWeek today. The layoffs are a result of job redundancies following the merger between Bloomberg and BusinessWeek. Despite job losses, BusinessWeek insiders say the publication expects its Tokyo bureau to grow.

Today marks the second round of layoffs at BusinessWeek one month before the publication’s anticipated April relaunch.

Those who have been cut from the publication include media and marketing writer Tom Lowry and Michelle Conlin, who focused on “workplace issues.” Both had been senior writers at the publication.
