Us Weekly Staffers Fears Come True as The Celebrity News Publication is Sold Off to Tabloid King American Media Inc
Us Weekly staffers who thought they avoided becoming part of the tabloid publisher are now no doubt terrified of what's to come. AMI which has been laying off staffers every chance it gets in an effort to shave costs, will definitely swing the axe on Us Weekly, partially gutting editorial and back end functions. Currently AMI has skeletal staffers working across its brands recycling the same stories, but just repackaging it based on the publication/website it is being recycled on/in. The deal brings AMI an additional 50 million consumers across Us' platforms. As for Wenner Media, the company gets to pay down some legal debt and turn all its focus and resources to its remaining properties like the flagship Rolling Stone magazine, Men's Journal and the recently launched gaming site Glixel. In September of last year Wenner Media sold a 49% stake in Rolling Stone magazine to Singapore based BandLab Technologies.
