Washington Post eliminates nearly two dozen newsroom positions citing ‘economic climate’


The Washington Post eliminated the jobs of nearly two dozen newsroom staffers on Tuesday, the latest in a slew of cuts made by the nation’s biggest media and tech companies in recent weeks. The Post, which is owned by billionaire Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and has a staff of hundreds, said 20 current newsroom positions would be cut and an additional 30 open positions would not be filled. “Newsroom leaders made these decisions after a thoughtful and deliberate review of our current roles and vacant positions. “We are not planning further job eliminations at this time.”The threat of impending layoffs had been hanging over the Post’s newsroom for weeks. Late last summer, The New York Times, the Post’s top competitor, reported extensively on the outlet’s struggles with digital subscriptions and revenue in recent months.
