Woman’s Day Lays Off Five Staffers

womansday.jpgAn insider at Woman’s Day just confirmed a tip sent to FishbowlNY that five staffers on the editorial side have been laid off due to “budget reasons.” Our source declined to reveal who had been let go.

We called editor-in-chief Jane Chesnutt for comment but were told by her assistant that she was “in a meeting.”

We’ll keep you updated, but if you hear anything email us.

Update: Another source tells us editorial coordinator — a 20-year veteran of the mag — Michele Fedele, test kitchen assistant (another longtime staffer) Dionisia (Celia) Colon, and research director Ruth Manuel-Logan, who’s been at Woman’s Day for at least six years, were three of the five let go.
