By Andrew Roberts, Wired staff writerThe most popular traveling travel magazine, Travel, has been under a lot of scrutiny recently, with a slew of negative headlines, many of them pointing to its decision to hire an editor who worked at BuzzFeed.
In the wake of that news, the company announced a new hiring strategy for its magazine, and it’s now hiring a number of staffers, most of whom have already moved on to other publications.
But the magazine’s future is still unclear.
The news that the magazine was going to hire a new editor was met with a chorus of boos from some of its former staffers.
A number of the former employees are now back in their former positions and are working on new projects for the magazine.
The hiring was also met with some backlash, as some former employees were accused of “bullying” former staffers who worked on the magazine, which they denied.
The former employees said that they were just doing their job and that they weren’t fired over the situation.
“The fact that you have an editor that is someone that you’re trying to hire for this magazine is a huge plus, but the fact that they went with a different editor that’s not exactly a former employee is another issue,” one former employee told Wired.
“I don’t see any malice behind it.
It was not a bad decision by any means.”
The magazine was founded in 2005 and has more than 2.3 million readers.
The magazine’s new hires are expected to bring in some new content to the magazine over the next year or two.
Travel is owned by Time Inc. The news that it was hiring a new digital editor came as a surprise to some former staffers, as they were expecting to see that happen as soon as this year.
A former employee who worked with the magazine told Wired that the news was shocking.
“I was hoping it would be done by the end of the year, and I was hoping we would get the new digital editors in a few months,” the former employee said.
“It wasn’t going to happen in the first week.”
The former employees who are now working for the company said that the hiring was disappointing.
“It is a great day to have some good, solid people working for you, but it also is a bad day to get a bunch of new, inexperienced editors,” one of the new hires told Wired in an email.
“This is just the start of the downsizing.
We have a lot more work to do.”
