It’s been a rough few days at Time Inc. headquarters. Ahead of the company spinning off from Time Warner on Friday, People has cut about 12 staffers — some layoffs, some buyouts — and All You’s founding publisher, Diane Oshin (pictured), is departing the company.
Regarding the reductions at People, a Time Inc. spokesperson told Ad Age “We are always looking for ways to improve efficiencies and bring in new skills sets to keep up with our changing business.” So you know, take that for whatever it’s worth.
As for Oshin — who most recently served as group publisher of All You and Cooking Light — a memo from Evelyn Webster, Time Inc.’s executive VP, said Oshin wanted to “explore new opportunities.”
For now, Webster will assume Oshin’s duties overseeing All You. Kevin White will take over as group publsher of Cooking Light, MyRecipes and Health.
