Job losses continue to mount in digital marketing and ad sales

Job losses continue to mount in digital marketing and ad sales. ClickZ's layoff tracker recently added a number of new firms to our ongoing tally of headcount reductions in new media.

Among the latest:

UK broadcaster Channel 4 cut 15 percent of its "commercial team," including strategic sales, sponsorship and new media staffers, according to Brand Republic.

Hearst Digital reduced its new media sales team from 16 to 12, also according to Brand Republic.

Time Inc. dismissed 92 people as part of a consumer marketing and sales reorg that also affects its digital team. PaidContent has the memo.
