More departures from Fortune named
Keith Kelly of the New York Post has more names of the business journalists who are leaving Fortune magazine as it slims its staff ranks.
Kelly writes, “In addition to the already disclosed Cait Murphy, an assistant managing editor with more than a decade of service, the list includes Paul Sloan, originally one of the infamous nine who had been saved when Business 2.0 was folded by Time Inc. last September.
“Sloan continued to work out of San Francisco and was technically given a generous package – once it became clear that he was on the hit list. Also said to be exiting is Matthew Boyle, a senior writer, and Senior Editor John Simons, who also technically ‘took a package’ once he saw the handwriting on the wall.
“Several others are also rumored to be heading for the exit, but those names have not been confirmed as being part of the company’s plan reduce its headcount by 15 by year-end.”
