Vice Media To Lay Off Dozens of Staffers in ‘Reorganization’ Effort

Vice_title_screenVice Media plans to fire at least fifteen people Tuesday, reports Politico, with additional firings beginning the same day.

Politico’s Hadas Gold reports that former Bloomberg editor Josh Tyrangiel will head up the company’s news division as part of “a reorganization that will see around 15 Vice News digital producers, writers and editors laid off in New York and Los Angeles.”

Shortly after Politico’s story went to print, Vice foreign correspondent Harriet Salem announced on Twitter that the layoffs had already begun in Europe.

Vice UK’s website lists fifteen staffers with some sort of editorial title, making the total number of layoffs at Vice as high as thirty-two.
