New York Post: “Today we are offering voluntary buyouts to a limited number of newsroom employees,” editor-in-chief Col Allan tells his staff. “It is our intention now to reduce our staffing levels by 10% through this initiative, and other measures if necessary.” (Other measures = layoffs, no doubt.)
New York Daily News: More than a dozen staffers were laid off yesterday – including veteran gossip columnist Joanna Molloy — and another round of layoffs is expected today, reports Joe Pompeo.
UPDATE: The editor-in-chief and deputy editor at the Village Voice resigned this morning after being told to cut five positions from their 20-person staff, reports David Carr. Veteran columnist Michael Musto is said to be a layoff target. He’s been in the paper about three decades.
