Business Week Lays Off 15 Reporters Due to Market Conditions


Online media, citizen media, and traditional print publications are competing at unprecedented levels, which are forcing many publishers to tighten their belts as a way of gunning for survival. Any tighter and they may suffocate themselves.

BusinessWeek just cut 15 reporters from staff, including good friend, Larry Armstrong. The publication is citing difficulties in the market.

It’s true that publications are laying off staff and it isn’t new. However, it’s always interesting to see who they target in their rounds. Larry is a proven, well known and highly respected business and technology journalist.
