Layoffs at GQ After Cost Cuts at Condé Nast
About seven staffers have been laid off at GQ as Condé Nast continues to reorganize after budget cuts, according to a report from WWD today. While GQ gave no comment on the staff changes, they did confirm they will shift some jobs as it continues to grow digital. Sources told WWD that the positions hit include managing editor, senior digital editor, entertainment editor, market associate, business manager, and business assistant.
It’s expected that more mastheads at the publishing house will experience blows, as GQ’s staff is one of the first to be severely combed through; the report also rumors that Glamour might undergo cuts next.
