A difficult new year is looming for the good people at the ever-essential Time Out magazine, as it was announced this morning that they’re to lose 13 staff in the new year; potentially 90% from editorial. Tough times for staff both staying and going, not to mention the concerns they have for the publication itself, which has been going through a series of changes to consolidate its online and print editions. In September Time Out’s founder and publisher Tony Elliott speculated on a slimming down of the weekly London bible and even of it becoming a freesheet. The Standard too is battling the freesheets and with dropping newspaper sales, it’s clearly tough times for London’s paid for titles. By Jaz Cummins.
