The Washington Post to eliminate jobs early next year

by | Dec 15, 2022

The Washington Post will continue to eliminate jobs early next year, said Publisher Fred Ryan, weeks after the paper announced it will shutter its Sunday magazine and lay off 11 newsroom employees, reports The Post.

Ryan said at a companywide meeting that the cuts will probably amount to a “single-digit percentage” of the company’s 2,500 employees but did not provide specifics. He added, though, that the company will add new jobs to offset the loss of positions that are “no longer serving readers,” and that The Post’s total head count will not be reduced.

The publisher, continued The Post, “walked out of the meeting after dozens of employees raised their hands and peppered him with questions. Plans for job cuts will be finalized “over the coming weeks,” Post spokeswoman Kathy Baird said in a statement.

“The development comes during a difficult season for media workers, as companies across the industry have laid off workers and instituted hiring freezes.”
