Buyouts, Then Layoffs At Philly.com, Inquirer, Daily News?

The combined newsrooms of the Inquirer, the Philadelphia Daily News, and Philly.com will undergo a reduction in force of 37 positions through a combination of buyouts and layoffs, the Philadelphia Newspaper Guild said.

Details of the buyout program will be coming from HR soon, but the gist is as usual: the more people who sign up for buyouts, the fewer layoffs there will be.

Departments targeted include “Reporters, Writing Reporters, Rewrite, News Artists, Photographers, Photo Printers, Copy Editors/Readers, Make-Up Persons, Desk Assistants, Cartoonists, Editorial Writers, Editorial Clerks and Philly.com Multi Media Content Producers.”

Everyone, both bought-out and laid off, must be out by March 31.
