More Layoffs at the LA Times
I had a really bad day today, and tomorrow is going to be even worse. You see, I've been a newspaper reporter for a major metropolitan paper for a lot of years now. I used to believe that newspapers could weather any storm. Now I'm not so sure. There's yet another round of layoffs, and I think my number is up this time. So I can keep dancing or give up. I think I'll put on that red tutu and try a few new steps. (Then I'll cry and take a nap.) What else can you do?
Nancy Sullivan, Vice President of communications at the paper, confirmed to LAist that there have been "some layoffs companywide," but could not comment beyond that. A source to Reuters said there could be as many as a few dozen layoffs, but another source said that number may be "too extreme."
Yesterday, the New York Times announced that 100 newsroom jobs will be cut.
