The Hollywood Reporter has laid off some of its staff, and a third are in editorial. The staff cuts have affected the publication’s web team, styles coverage and international correspondents, according to reports.
In Janurary 2019, both The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard, owned by Valence Media, cut just over 20 staffers in areas other than editorial and some corporate positions within Valence. At that point in time, the company announced that the cuts would lead to a growth in staff as more hiring was expected.
Although the publication added approximately 100 people with its December acquisition of Nielsen Music Data, but those posts were not editorial.
The company declined to comment.
