More cuts at Time Inc. today – Ad Age reports that 80 employees were sent home today, from both the editorial and business sides.
On Dec. 13, 2005 Time Inc. axed 105 employees, including Time president Eileen Naughton, exec VP-news and information Richard Atkinson and Entertainment Weekly president Andy Sareyan.
Another well-publicized name on the cutting room floor last December: former Director of Public Affairs, Diana Pearson. Except this was odd: yesterday in my usual Sunday-morning newsweekly email onslaught, suddenly I was receiving emails from Pearson again, over a month after she’d been let go. A little freaked, I emailed alterna-Time PR person Ty Trippet. Ty responded that Diana, along with some other staffers, “was able to stay on for some extra weeks. And she worked this past weekend.” Then today, the axe falls again. Very confusing.
