New York Times will offer buyouts to editors in push to transform editing: Poynter

Benjamin Mullin writes in Poynter:
"The New York Times plans to release "more information by the end of the month" about a buyout program for editors amid a much-anticipated reduction of the editing staff.
"The buyout program will also be offered to some staffers across the newsroom, according to a memo sent to the newsroom this morning by Executive Editor Dean Baquet and Managing Editor Joe Kahn.
"'As we have said several times in recent months, we're working hard to improve and streamline our editing system,' the memo reads. 'Our goal is to preserve meticulous text editing while meeting the demands of digital, which requires more speed and more visual storytelling. We have also said that we expect some reductions in the size of the newsroom, including in the editing staff.'"
