Cox Media To Consolidate Copy Editing, Resulting In Loss Of 30+ Jobs

Cox Media is combining the copy desks of its four major dailies, which will result in the loss of at least 30 jobs and the relocation of many more people, multiple sources are reporting.

The copy editing and design functions for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Austin American Statesman, Dayton Daily News, and the Palm Beach Post will all be moving to two central locations, one in Dayton, Oh., and the other in Palm Beach, Fla.

All Cox is saying so far is that “in some cases, positions will be eliminated,” according to a memo obtained by Charles Apple. But in other cases, the company says, new positions will be created—and employees have first shot at those openings.

According to Creative Loafing, an estimated 30 jobs in Atlanta will be cut. We’re not sure how many jobs in Austin might also disappear.

The changes will be implemented over the next year and a half.
