Alan Meckler, CEO of WebMediaBrands, confirmed the move on his blog. WebMediaBrands, which sold its images division to Getty Images in February, operates three Web communities: Graphics.com, Internet.com and Mediabistro.com.
“The economy is overall most responsible for the firings,” Meckler wrote in his blog, adding: “Most of the changes we made were based on better integrating the operations and Web sites of our three main networks. For example, we had two trade show teams. Now we have one team for all three networks.”
