Layoffs at the LA Daily News were announced late yesterday. Reporter Brent Hopkins blogs:

Corporate will cut 22 jobs in Editorial by the end of the week, bringing us down to 100 people in the newsroom. They’ll be spread between management and rank-and-file, but the numbers will vary depending on who volunteers by noon tomorrow.

Editor Ron Kaye will continue in his role.

Daily News Blogs On Crime

The Daily News, perhaps in imitation of the LAT’s Homicide Report , perhaps just for fun, launched a crime blog, It’s A Crime.

Human interest stories abound,as the site is edited by crime beat/LAPD reporters Rachel Uranga and Rick Coca, Jason Kandel, web reporter, and man for all seasons, Brent Hopkins.

The Daily News has quite a number of blogs, and unlike the LA Times, they’re easy to find.
