Robin Givhan Let Go in Newsweek Layoffs

Robin Givhan Among Newsweek Layoffs

Say it ain't so: Robin Givhan has been let go from her position as the special correspondent for style and culture at Newsweek and The Daily Beast. She'll leave the company at the end of the year.

Daily Intel reports that Givhan is among the employees of The Newsweek/Daily Beast Company laid off on the second day of its ongoing staff reductions. The layoffs come after Newsweek announced that it would stop printing and merge with the Beast's online platform.

"I plan to work on my book about the 1973 Versailles fashion show and look for a new job," Givhan said.

She joined Newsweek at the end of 2010 and had previously been the fashion editor of The Washington Post. In 2006, Givhan became the first and only fashion journalist to win a Pulitzer Prize "for her witty, closely observed essays that transform fashion criticism into cultural criticism."
