Time Inc is continuing to lay off people, especially at their Southern Progress unit in Birmingham, AL.

Media of Birmingham has learned from company sources that five from the editorial side of COOKING LIGHT* were included, despite the magazine having a 27% increase in December ad pages.

It looks like the cuts will be around 12%, double the 6% in the rest of the company.  The corporate library in Birmingham will be shut down, and the remaining 500 to 600 employees will occupy less of Southern Progress’ campus-like setting, a spokesperson confirmed.
