More Details on Stacy Curtis’ lay-off

Editor and Publisher has contacted Stacy and posted a story with some more information about his dismissal with The Times.

Curtis, 34, who believes he was let go in a cost-cutting move, expressed surprise at the decision. “The newspaper pushed ‘local, local, local’ all the time, so I felt my job was pretty secure,” he told E&P. “Ninety-eight percent of the cartoons I did were local.”

This local approach “probably bought me some time,” added Curtis, but ultimately didn’t save his job.
