BuzzFeed News announced on Tuesday that its editor in chief is stepping down and the company is offering buyouts to eligible staffers that could turn into layoffs.

Editor in Chief Mark Schoofs, who replacedBen Smith in 2020, announced his decision to the newsroom Tuesday. Samantha Henig, BuzzFeed’s vice president of news strategy and operations, will be serving as interim top editor.

BuzzFeed News is also losing deputy editor in chief Tom Namako, who announced Tuesdaythat he will be the new executive editor of NBC News Digital. Ariel Kaminer, executive editor for Investigations and Tech, is also exiting.

BuzzFeed went public via SPAC in December. In its first earnings call as a public company, which also happened Tuesday, CEO Peretti said the company as a whole has seen higher audience engagement than ever before. The media organization also remained profitable for the second year in a row.


Looks like Buzzfeed News is about to become a thing of the past. Since they are offering buyouts without a current contract that allows for buyouts, their union has filed has filed a complaint with the NLRB.

That's been happening since the Trump/Russia Steele Dossier and their dumb claim (and doubling down on it) that Trump ordered Cohen to lie to Congress (which was denied by Team Mueller).
