Pulitzer Prize winner Matt Davies has been laid off from The Journal News along with others according to his Facebook account. Not much has been made public about the layoff. I’ve called the paper and they’ve confirmed that Matt is no longer at the paper suggesting that the layoff was immediate. I’ll report details as they become available.
Matt barely survived an early lay-off last year when after receiving his pink slip his editor convinced Gannett to revive the position.
Matt won the Pulitzer Prize and the Herblock award in 2004.
