34 Globe Buyout Candidates?

With the deadline having passed yesterday for applying for a Globe buyout, a list circulating in the building indicates that 34 editorial side employees have applied for the package, including eight staffers in a Living/Arts (features) department that would be hit particularly hard by the cutbacks.(The Globe has said it was looking to reduce the newsroom staff by about three dozen jobs).

The company still has to respond to the applicants as well as negotiate how long some of the departees will remain in their jobs. But among those confirmed buyout applicants are Travel editor Wendy Fox, pop culture writer Renee Graham, feature writer Jack Thomas, op-ed page editor Nick King, editorial writer Susan Trausch, obit writer Tom Long, theater critic Ed Siegel, business writer Charlie Stein, and music writer Steve Morse.

Media Log is trying to get confirmation of other names on the list. But one notable inclusion is long-time political columnist Tom Oliphant. More to come.
