More Cuts at Gannett

In an article in our July issue, titled “Paper Jam,” we wrote of problems facing the Harrison-based Journal News, including staff cuts, furloughs, and other cost-cutting measures. It seems that the problems at the paper still persist, and the New York Times reports that 70 more jobs have been cut. The Times writes that the Journal News “told all 288 of its news and advertising sales employees on Wednesday that their jobs were being eliminated and they would need to apply for redefined positions by the end of the week. After the redefined jobs are filled, there will be 20 fewer positions in advertising and 50 fewer positions in news, reducing the newsroom staff (which includes Web employees) by more than a quarter.”
