Rodale Cuts 10 Senior Staffers

Happy holidays!

For 10 senior Rodale staffers, this holiday season just took a turn for the worse. According to the New York Post, the publisher issued pink slips as part of some sweeping changes.

Rodale’s head of new content development Anne Alexander; group publisher Chris Lambiase; senior vp in charge of business operations Brian O’Connell and vp of operations Alex Klapwald were among those cut.

As for the other changes, all editors will now report directly to Michael Lafavore, who was named editorial director in September. Also, each business unit will get a managing director. Lori Burgess will be the MD for Prevention, Laura Frerer-Schmidt for Women’s Health, Ronan Gardiner for Men’s Health and Zack Grice for Bicycling. The MDs will all report to chairwoman and CEO Maria Rodale.
