Contacts Update Time:
Who's Leaving The New York Times?

Reporters at The New York Times said to be taking the newspaper's previously announced buyout offer include these well-known bylines:

  • Louis Uchitelle, economics
  • Geraldine Fabrikant, business
  • Stephen Labaton, Washington correspondent covering financial regulatory reform.
  • Claiborne Ray - deputy obit desk editor; Q&A science columnist
  • Andrew Revkin - environment (described as a "possible")
  • Ralph Blumenthal - metro (described as "likely")
  • Fred Eliason, real estate
  • Saul Hansell,  technology

In October, the paper said it would seek to eliminate 100 newsroom positions through buyouts (Editor & Publisher ) .  It said layoffs would follow if the number of buyouts did not reach the target.  The deadline to accept the buyout offer is today.

Over 30 reporters, editors and photographers are said to be leaving, as well as numerous other staffers from the copy desk, design and other areas.

For an extended compilation (from which the above was taken) go to today's Gawker .
