More Tribune Company Lay Offs: Sun Sentinel to Cut 58 Jobs

Man, that Sam Zell is a busy bee. Not only is he ordering up the heads of 150 LAT staffers, but we just got word that the supposed media mogul is bringing his sickle to Florida.

From a Sun Sentinel staffer (well, staffer for now):

We just got word from the editor today, that 20 percent of the Sun Sentinel editorial staff will be laid off. Meaning, about 58 jobs will be cut.

So far, 15 or so have already volunteered to take the separation package

Severance package is two weeks pay for every year of service. (snip)

No department will be spared
