Times To Lay Off 100 Newsroom Staffers

Our Mediabistro sister site, FishbowlNY, has a copy of the memo to NYT staffers from Executive Editor Bill Keller announcing further job reductions at the paper.

A couple of excerpts from Keller’s message:

Let me cut to the chase: We have been told to reduce the newsroom by 100 positions between now and the end of the year.

We hope to accomplish this by offering voluntary buyouts. …

As before, if we do not reach 100 positions through buyouts, we will be forced to go to layoffs. I hope that won’t happen, but it might.
