UPDATE: I’m told there were 10 staffers sacked, including associate publisher Rose Einstein and art director Deeann Hoff and internatonal editor Chad Williams, and the two luxury brand reps in LA & in NY. As one of my tipsters explains: “Don’t miss the significance of the layoff of Deann Hoff — she is married to [with] Dave Morgan, deputy editor, so if she’s out, that’s very serious since Dave would not have let her go without a fight.” The layoffs started early this morning and continued all day. How they’re going to continue to put out a paper, I have no idea. Unless this will soon be an online-only publication.
