Some SB Nation Writers Are Being Furloughed for Three Months

Entercom, Beasley, Sports Illustrated, etc.

Every media company is going through some round of cuts, layoffs, or buyouts while we’re stuck in this global pandemic, which has shut down sports almost entirely.

Vox Media, which owns and operates SB Nation, among other outlets, is next in line, putting a number of writers on three-month furloughs:

Locally, Vox/SB Nation would include Bleeding Green Nation, The Good Phight, Broad Street Hockey, Liberty Ballers, and The Brotherly Game. I haven’t seen any announcements from those people, and it’s my understanding that the furloughs didn’t hit anybody locally, at least not yet.

More on the big picture outlook from Kerry Flynn at CNN:

Vox Media, owner of sites including Vox, The Verge and New York magazine, is furloughing about 9% of its employees for three months. The decision is one of several measures the digital media company announced Friday to cut costs after the coronavirus pandemic decimated its revenue sources.

The furloughs, which will run from May 1 to July 31, affect multiple departments including sales, events, production, IT, operations and editorial. Vox Media currently employs about 1,200 people, resulting in about 100 people facing three-month furloughs. In addition, about 1% of the company’s personnel will have reduced hours for the same time period. Vox Media will continue to cover the health benefits of those affected.

The struggle is real.

    the per ka sie huckster can’t pay you much longer. Saw him whining about PPP on twitter. why should he get any Gov’t handout? to push gambling and steal content?

      1. I’ve seen Spike Eskin in person and that skinny little
        runt with the funny shaped smashed in head doesn’t look tough at all.

    1. I hope you don’t expect a response to this over the weekend. Kevvie has a double shift as Domino’s delivery guy this weekend. Mans gotta do what he’s gotta do

    2. Today I’m celebrating 3 years being sober . I used to drink vodka, smoke weed everyday for 15 years straight, even sniff cocaine and pop pills . My wife left me & I thought drugs was taking away my pain but it was only making me worse . I’m not a perfect person today but I’m clean

  2. Yea, why not keep the country closed longer? It seems to be going great! You think taxes are high now, you ain’t seen nothing yet. idiots

  3. I can’t stand Trump, but Biden? He’s ridiculous. He’s totally gone mentally. I have to close my eyes and vote Trump this time. Cuomo 2024!

      1. It’s not guna be close. Trump is going to win by a ton. Cuomo is the only person who could beat Trump. I don’t know any democrats that will vote for Biden.

  4. Biden will destroy Trump in November! Trumps approval rating is down to 12%. He’s failed as president. Biden is a brilliant man who will dominate Trump on the debate stage. The stupid red necks won’t be enough this time.

    1. I hate Joe and his rhetoric. I speak the truth. Biden is what we want and need. He is dominating the polls.

  5. Hey Joe – you don’t know what rhetoric means. No surprise. Lol

    Who is voting for Biden? Not a fan.

    You still can’t figure all this out. Incredibly sad.

    I bet I know what you are doing this weekend.

    No wonder you are broke.

    And off he goes.

    1. I’ll tell you. I’ve been in my beautiful 5,500 sqft home for 30 days. I’ve rode my quad on my 12 acres. I built a shed for my quads and tractor. Been drinking opus1 and argyle. Been watching Netflix on my 125 in hd projector. Ending the nights with some Johnny walker blue in my barn bar. So yea life is good. Oh yea, and I washed my 2019 f250 platinum. Lol.

    1. After Monty beats the Coronavirus; will he be able to spend a weekend with Woke Mikey Miss at his Shore House to help his recovery?

  6. Let’s just say that a tradesman who owns his own business can make a lot of money.

  7. But they can’t be stupid. That eliminates Plunger Boy.

    Plunger Boy already told us he doesn’t appreciate people with money. He feels they look down on him.

    Plunger Boy should be fishing for turds, but he will spend the next 12 hours talking to himself right here.

    Enjoy. You are welcome.

  8. From the guy who says check the polls, Biden is winning swing states!!! Lol!!!! Trump’s face will be on money some day. He took his greatest accomplishment, the best economy in history, shut it down for public health, and will build it back stronger than ever. But he is mean sometimes and that makes you sad. Grow up.

    1. Here here Joe! Well said. These snowflake lib tards don’t know how lucky they are. Such babies.

      Hey Joe, we all love you and what you stand for. Thank you for being a voice of reason in these crazy times.

  9. What polls? Are you responding to yourself too much again? Who is a liberal? Who likes Biden? What are your plans for today? You seem upset?! Is somebody pulling your strings? Why did you stay up all night responding to yourself. Why so angry? Who said what about Biden? So your hands stink from the turds?
    Do you live with Harv? Biden? Who said what?

    Carry on Crazy Plunger Boy!

      1. Right on Joe. We love you!!

        Hope he doesn’t bring up all the times; where you spend hours a day talking about gays negatively.

        We all love you.!

        FYI. We are starting to confuse me again.

      2. I doubt you are a Plumber. Snowflakes don’t plumb.

        God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. You are what is wrong with this world. Accepting that behavior? Good luck voting for Biden Libby. Read the Bible. Be a Christian. You accept it!!!! Disgusting liberal.

    1. Good idea. That was brutal. You dug the stupid ; hole quicker than normal. We are learning. When in a; stupid hole – stop digging, it only gets deeper. We all love Joe the liberal!

      1. Listen sonny, Muslim people don’t fit in here in America. We don’t believe in covering women’s faces. My husband doesn’t own or control me.

    1. It looks like you wrote everything on this page.

      Internet Tourette’s? Out of nowhere you start talking about Tyson Fury and Conor McGregor?

      Are you ok?
