Possible Job Cuts Ahead As Media General Mulls Consolidation

media general.jpgOur sister blog MediaJobsDaily has a tip that publisher Media General is “planning to consolidate the copy-editing and design functions for most of its papers into a central location, which would ultimately end in reducing staff.”

Media General owns 21 daily newspapers and more than 200 specialty publications, including community weeklies (some of which are already being edited out of a central location, says MediaJobsDaily), and employs more than 5,000 staffers company-wide. A consolidation of this kind would likely affect quite a few.
