Disney, the magazine's parent company, had announced cost-cutting measures and that the magazine would no longer be available on US newsstands next year

National Geographic reportedly fired its last editors and will no longer be sold on US newsstands.

These are the last 19 editors, according to a Washington Post report, which confirmed several Twitter workers.

“I was so lucky. I worked with incredible journalists and told important, global stories. It was an honor,” Craig Welch tweeted, one of the now former editors of National Geographic. Journalist Doug Main said on Twitter on Tuesday: “National Geographic is firing its staff editors, including me.”

According to a report in the Washington Post in the future magazine will be done byindependent writers and a few remaining editors. The publication also agrees with a previous announcement by National Geographic cited by the Guardianunder which the magazine had said it would retain some editors.

In addition, as part of cost-cutting measures implemented by Disney, the publication's parent company, the magazine , with its distinctive yellow border, will not be available on newsstands in the US starting next year.

The magazine, which has chronicled the natural world and humanity worldwide for 135 years had announced to CNN that it will continue to publish monthly issues.

“The staffing changes will not change our ability to do this work, but instead will give us greater flexibility to to tell different stories and meet our audience where they are across our many platforms,” his spokesperson told CNN. “Any suggestion that the recent changes will negatively affect the magazine or the quality of our storytelling is simply false.”
