"This is not an easy decision but one that we believe is best for the overall health of BNP Media." Impacted employees were notified of the cuts the previous Friday, March 15. Current staffers, on condition of anonymity, said the layoffs extend beyond just the magazines being shut down and that further cuts are expected, but couldn't put an exact number on the amount of employees being laid off. Reps for BNP Media declined to share specifics. "The three titles we are merging had become redundant with some of our larger titles. It just made sense to consolidate our efforts," Tagg Henderson, co-CEO of BNP Media, tells Folio:. "While we made every effort to succeed with the discontinued titles, the markets they serve had become too... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
