San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group Loses Managing Editor

Ben Baeder put in his last day Friday as the deputy managing editor of the San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group, a local division of newspaper publishing giant MediaNews Group. The San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group consists of three dailies: the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the Pasadena Star-News and the Whittier Daily News.

According to Gary Scott, Baeder decided to leave the company last month shortly after newsroom layoffs were announced. The layoffs came even after paycuts, furloughs, and a freeze on vacation accruals. Sounds like a pretty demoralizing place to work.
