BuzzMedia Lays Off 11 People

We promise tomorrow’s news won’t focus so much on layoffs but as for today, not so much.

The New York Post reports BuzzMedia has laid off 11 people. Editor-in-chief Steve Kandell and managing editor Catherine Davis were among the 11 employees. In addition, the November/December issue has been canned.

According to a statement, new owners (they took over Spin magazine three weeks ago) indicted they’ll double their staff during the next 12 months.

Plus, their spokeswoman added, “BuzzMedia is still determining exactly how print fits in with Spin’s multiple distribution points and growth initiatives.”
