Beginning in mid-February of next year, 59 employees will be cut at Hearst Magazines, according to a WARN notice filed with the New York State Labor Department. https://labor.ny.gov/app/warn/details.asp?id=9350
The move comes as Hearst’s O, The Oprah Magazine goes from 12 issues to four in 2021.
In a video released in the summer, Winfrey talked about the future of the magazine. “There’s been a lot of chatter and a lot of speculation about O The Magazine ending,” she said. “I want you to know it’s not ending. It’s evolving because after 20 years of covers I think it’s time. I also think it’s a good thing because none of us were meant to stay the same. We evolve with the times. So, yes, we are ending the monthly print edition with this year’s December issue,” she said.
