Vice Media has made another round of job cuts, according to the Wall Street Journal.



The cuts were reportedly made on Thursday (29 September) and affected 15 people in various departments of Viceland, including programming, marketing and research.

In comes after several rounds of layoffs over the past year at the company, which began in 2018 when Vice Media missed its revenue goals and cut staff by 10%, affecting around 250 people.

However, Dominique Delport, president of international and chief revenue officer at Vice, recently told The Drum that the publisher had “grown-up” and was positive about its future.

Last month, the Wall Street Journal also reported that Vice Media was in talks to acquire online publisher Refinery29.

Refinery29 is a women’s focused publisher, claiming to reach over 425 million readers globally, and is backed by the likes of ad network WPP, Hearst and Discovery.
