Media General Cuts 75

Media General, the company that sold 63 papers to Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway in May, is dropping 75 staffers.

According to a memo obtained by Jim Romenesko, the cuts were coming from “corporate staff departments and in the digital media section of the Growth and Performance group.”

“Affected employees are being notified effective today; however, certain positions will have a deferred termination date between now and the end of the year for various business reasons,” wrote Media General’s CEO, Marshall Morton, in the memo.
