Buyouts at NYT

Handling Comms During COVID-19? We've compiled our best resources.

Reports of specific journalists accepting voluntary buyouts from The New York Times have surfaced. Dec. 2 was the deadline to apply for a buyout, following an Oct. 1 announcement that 100 newsroom positions needed to be eliminated to avoid layoffs. As reported by Capital, confirmed buyouts thus far (among them many NYT veterans) include: Science Times editor David Corcoran; chief financial correspondent Floyd Norris; Washington editor and correspondent Brian Knowlton; senior correspondent Joseph Berger; Editorial Board member David Firestone; TV writer Bill Carter; Washington reporter Edward Wyatt; deputy national and education editor Ethan Bronner; publishing industry writer Christine Haughney; Arts staff editor David DeWitt; assistant business editor Jack Lynch; auto editor James Cobb; environment reporter Felicity Barringer; labor reporter Steven Greenhouse and advertising reporter Stuart Elliott. Further buyouts and subsequently, layoffs may be reported in the coming weeks. Follow The Grey Lady via NYT’s Twitter and “Like” on Facebook. Wish those departing all the best in future endeavors.
