AP Lays Off 10 Staffers

According to Romenesko and a tipster of his, the AP has let go 10 staffers, including three bureau chiefs, two assistant bureau chiefs, two in AP images, entertainment reporter Rosalie Fox, and a photo editor.

The AP is also killing its premium personal finance wire, but reassigning the five staffers who worked on it, a separate tipster said.

According to the Tennessee Ticket blog, one of the AP staffers affected was Bill Poovey, the only AP Chattanooga correspondent.

Today the AP also announced that it is reinstating its internship programs after a one-year hiatus. When the news service initially announced the yearlong break, some didn’t believe the internships would ever return, so chalk one up for small victories.
