40 Jobs Eliminated at Us Weekly, The Majority of Print Side Staffers Are Now Gone

A week after tabloid publisher American Media Inc (AMI) acquired UsWeekly from Wenner Media for a reportedly $100 million, AMI is already making cuts. The entire west coast editorial team of Us Weekly has been canned as was editor in chief Michael Steele and editorial director Jaimee Zanzinger. So far a total of 40 jobs have been eliminated.

From WWD:
Back in New York, there were tears in Wenner’s Midtown headquarters when staffers were notified, an insider said. Over the past week, staffers were interviewed about their jobs as part of a reapplication process. According to an insider, some staffers were asked to “throw others under the bus,” while others were questioned about workflow and the process of reporting and posting stories.
