Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

The Miami Herald makes staff cuts about as regularly as the rest of us get haircuts. 

Today the paper sent out a memo informing the staff that 16 of them would be sent home today with a pink slip, and 18 other unfilled positions would be eliminated. Of course, the memo quickly leaked to the Pulp; you can read more there

Random Pixels reports that some of the full-time staffers were offered part-time positions. One who didn't take the downgrade option was photographer Battle Vaughn, a 43-year veteran of the Ayem Papyrus. He lays out a fond look back at his Herald career

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
