LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Veteran journalist Jeff Leeds, who covered the music industry for the venerable New York Times has been included in the latest round of staffing cutbacks at the newspaper.
Leeds, who the NYT poached from the Los Angeles Times in 2004 had been based in Los Angeles where he covered many facets of the music industry.
"It came as a surprise. He was upset to be cut," an source close to the matter told the blog Deadline Hollywood "But it's an odd beat to cut because it's not like there's overlap. It says a lot about how the paper views the music biz." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
