From the desk of Williams: don’t believe them. Reports of significant job cuts at News Limited — including in Crikey — aren’t to be believed, CEO Kim Williams has assured staff in an email. Williams says the reports have all been “speculative, inaccurate and have clearly not originated from anyone with detailed knowledge or responsibility for the various changes we will be making to secure our future”. Crikey reported on Thursday that senior executives Diana Eilert and Tim Sligo have quit — confirmed by News — amid speculation of further staff cuts at regional newspapers.
