National Geographic Lays Off Its Last Remaining Staff Writers

Washington: Over a century after it was first published in 1888, the National Geographic magazine, which brought the wonders of science and nature to people’s doorsteps, has now sent home its last staff! Not only that, the printing of this magazine, which was published monthly, will be completely stopped from next year.

A total of 19 writers were let go by the publication as per reports and tweets by several editorial members.

On Wednesday, several veteran authors bid farewell to the institution by tweeting about the publication of their last article in this month’s edition of National Geographic. National Geographic, owned by Disney, has been published since 1888.

“My new National Geographic just arrived, which includes my latest feature—my 16th, and my last as a senior writer. NatGeo is laying off all of its staff writers. I’ve been so lucky. I got to work w/incredible journalists and tell important, global stories. It’s been an honor,” Craig A Welch, senior writer at National Geographic wrote on Twitter.
