CUTS AT MEREDITH: Meredith Corp. on Thursday disclosed plans to lay off 45 people in its special interest media group, and most positions affected are at the company’s headquarters in Des Moines. A spokesman noted the downturn in the housing marketplace has negatively impacted the special interest sector, typically a cyclical business. Magazines in this group provide information on subjects such as health, home building, remodeling and decorating. The company will record a special charge of $5.5 million for the second quarter, related to severance and other costs.
