USA Today told the Associated Press that its weekly bestseller book list will go on “hiatus for the remainder of the year” after its presiding editor was laid off in a round of budget-saving cuts on December 1, initiated by the newspaper’s parent company, Gannett. In August, the company terminated 3% of its workforce (around 400 employees) after posting a loss of $54 million, on revenues of $749 million, in its second quarter.
