Facing an unrelentingly tough advertising market, Dotdash Meredith is cutting 7% of its staff 274 positions, the digital publisher’s chief executive told employees on Thursday.
CEO Neil Vogel said in an email around 8 a.m. that the company’s business leaders and human resources staff had scheduled one-on-one meetings with workers who would lose their jobs at the company, publisher of titles like Better Homes & Gardens and People and websites like The Spruce and Byrdie.
The move comes as other media companies have made similar cuts. The Washington Post laid off 20 employees and closed 30 open positions Tuesday. Vox Media, AdWeek, NBC News, Vice Media and CNN also have made cut jobs in the last two months.
