Outside Media Company Will Close Three Magazines

From a story on poynter.org by Angela Fu headlined “Outside media company will cut three magazines and lay off dozens of employees”:

Outside Inc., which publishes more than 20 magazines dedicated to the outdoors and fitness including namesake Outside, will lay off 66 full-time employees as it shifts away from print and focuses on digital. The company has roughly 580 employees.

The news comes just months after editorial staff at Outside magazine withdrew their petition to the National Labor Relations Board for a union election. The staff had announced their union drive with the NewsGuild on Jan. 4, but just six weeks later, they unanimously decided to halt their efforts “for the collective good.”
