New York Observer Lays Off Eleven


The new Kushner-Trump family era at the NYC weekly had its first major changes today with a round of eleven layoffs on the business side, including the entire long-outmoded classifieds department, Women’s Wear Daily reports. While there were no indications that editorial cuts will follow, “the reorganization is intended to eliminate redundancies and create a clear understanding of individual focus,” according to new CEO Joseph Meyer. Editor Ken Kurson reportedly told staff, “It’s still a good news Friday.”
