Kimmage and Hawkey cut from Sunday Times (SJA, Monday 14th November, 2011)The Times and Sunday Times are to cut up to 200 editorial posts – around 20 per cent of their journalists – as the newspapers aim to slash editorial costs by up to 15 per cent against a background of rising newsprint costs and disappointing ad revenues for the title’s iPad service.
It seems certain that the staff cuts will impact the sports desks of the papers, particularly at the Sunday title which is heavily dependent on casual subs and freelancers.
It's crossed my mind that:MartinGT said:So you're saying they (The Times) got shut of him because it was too risky?
But he was a sports journalist/interviewer at the Sunday Times not a cycling journalist. Most of his articles about cycling were during the Tour.Don Quixote said:20% and they cut the guy with his finger on the pulse? Appalling foresight at the very best.
ssshh, don't say that! people here like to believe murdoch controls the planet and thus all media regarding skymanafana said:as above sunday times doesnt have a close link with sky pro cycling bar the ownership, plenty honest pieces on the sky issues.
I think you mean David Walsh? Hands is a rugby writer. Walsh has indeed led the charge on anti-doping, over many years - it was his material which led to LA sueing and winning against the paper in 2004 (?).Velo_vicar said:David Hands still works for Sunday times. He has done as much if not more than Kimmage in this.
