Weeks after three of its core editorial team was laid off in a surprise move, CBR has lost another member of its editorial staff with news editor Noah Dominguez announcing his departure on social media Monday morning.

“As of today, I am 26 years old. As of today, I am also officially no longer with CBR. My departure has been a long time coming and I have a lot of complicated feelings,” Dominguez wrote in a tweet that launched a retrospective thread about their time at the site.

Dominguez had been with CBR since August 2018, initially joining the site as a news writer before being promoted to news editor; amongst those thanked in the thread is former CBR senior news editor Stephen Gerding, one of the three figures laid off at the end of May by corporate parent Valnet, Inc. As part of the internal statement released to CBR contributors about the three layoffs, which also impacted editor-in-chief Adam Swiderski and senior features editor Christopher Baggett, Valnet Inc. content director George Edelman wrote that the CBR would be facing “major structural changes related to turning the corner on both culture and performance,” with future meetings with remaining editorial staff to define these changes being scheduled.

“Maybe in the future I'll speak more publicly about my decision to leave. Maybe I won’t,” Dominguez wrote at the end of the thread, noting that they “have high hopes for the future,” after alluding to “a couple of things planned for my post-CBR life.”

Popverse has been looking into what’s been happening at CBR; expect more shortly.

The changes at CBR started with the removal of editor-in-chief Adam Swiderski.
