New York Post cuts newsroom staff in 'restructuring'

The New York Post is cutting newsroom staffers as part of what the company is calling a restructuring, Post reps confirmed Friday.

“Unfortunately, today’s changes means some of our colleagues will be leaving us,” staffers learned in a memo signed by CEO Sean Giancola and Editor-In-Chief Keith Poole that was posted by a CNN reporter. “Those impacted have already been contacted, and we want to thank each of them for their contributions.”

The memo did not specify a number, but CNN reported that about a dozen staffers had been laid off, about 3% of the staff.

Poole, when contacted, had no comment, though a rep confirmed the cuts. The right-leaning tabloid’s bosses, in the memo, said the restructuring would “serve our audiences and the business better.”

The layoffs include well-known political reporter Nolan Hicks, who told his followers about the development in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter.


“Two mayors, two govs, two MTA chairs and god knows how many budgets — proud of the stories on billion dollar stations, unequal COVID and mpox vaccine access, kids left in lead-tainted apartments, and unsafe shelters,” Hicks wrote in a post. “It’s been a good run. Got laid off. Will be at the bar.”

Last week, staffers at The Wall Street Journal were hit by another round of layoffs, according to The Daily Beast. The cut impacted employees on the video and social media desks, the outlet reported.

The New York Post and the Wall Street Journal are owned by media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s NewsCorp.
