John Seeley has been let go from his job at The Wall Street Journal, where he was founding editor of the paper’s metro section, Greater New York.
“Tonight I’m the bearer of bad news: The corporate belt-tighteners have decided that it would be best for the company if I were squeezed out,” he wrote to Greater New York staff Wednesday evening in an email obtained by Capital. “The worst part for me is that I will no longer be able to work to continue the section’s exciting maturation. The best part is that I got to teach my kid a new word — downsizing.”
