It's been a while since I reported a major loss to the electronics industry journalism ranks, but I got an email from Murray Slovick, Editorial Director of Electronic Products today. He caught the second wave of layoffs out the door from Hearst Business Publications.
Murray had been at Hearst since getting his leaving United Business Media where he ran the EE Times Product Center. He was one of the few guys left still interested in covering product announcements, which is going to put a world of hurt on some PR folks.
I've had no word on who else got the axe so I'm doing some digging.
