Salon Cuts Staffers

Six staffers were let go.

Salon has cut six staffers as part of “budgetary cuts.” According to Politico, assistant managing editor Ruth Henrich and life editor Kim Brooks were among those let go.

Henrich had been with Salon since the late 90s; Brooks since 2015.

“Salon Media Group took steps that we believe will put the company on a stronger path forward,” said Salon CEO Cindy Jeffers, in a statement. “We made the difficult decision to reduce our staff, in addition to other budgetary cuts. We hope these steps will move us in the direction of profitability and align us more closely with our strategy.”
