Warning Of Layoffs At Los Angeles Daily News

los-angeles-daily-news-logo-175.jpgGary Scott brings us word that the Daily News will be cutting newsroom jobs this week in an effort to reduce costs. From the union memo:

We learned this morning that management at the Los Angeles Daily News intends to layoff five people from the newsroom by the end of the week. Three metro reporting positions, one photographer and one graphic artist will be cut.

As the cuts move forward, we have been told that some managers will be demoted and placed in non-management positions, though we are waiting for more details.

These cuts are the result of a newsroom budget cut of 15 percent, as we previously reported. An informal survey of guild members led us to propose possible furloughs in lieu of layoffs. We are waiting to hear back from management.
