According to a comment tonight to an earlier post of mine about job cuts in B2B publishing, Edgell Communications, the Jersey-based publisher of magazines such as RIS News and Hospitality Technology, has begun laying off staffers.
I don't have many details, other than that six people have been handed their walking papers.
They have my sympathy. As the commenter, who goes by the name "lac" said: "It just really is such a horrible feeling."
It's about 10 p.m. as I write this post. And I'll be on the road for the next few days. So I won't be doing any reporting on the cuts. If anyone has details on which positions have been eliminated, please post a comment. In the meantime, I'll be looking for coverage in Folio.
