The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that some 15 people across multiple departments had been laid off, though there have been some recent new hires within the newsdesk.
The Journal said Vice Media plans to merge Vice News and Viceland, creating a sharper focus on its news output.
Last February Vice Media was forced to lay off 250 staff. Since then chief executive Nancy Dubuc has been working to turnaround the Canadian digital media company.
In May, Vice Media raised $250 million in debt from investors including George Soros.
Other investors include founder Shane Smith (20%), The Walt Disney Company (21%), A&E Networks (20%) and TPG Capital (44%).
