‘Detroit Free Press’ Announces Layoffs; Editor Jeff Taylor Joins ‘Indianapolis Star’

Another day, another layoff announcement. Or so it seems.

Detroit Free Press is making cuts and according to Paul Anger, the editor and publisher, they “won’t be tiny.” This is according to three reporters and an editor who attended a meeting yesterday (via Motor City Muckraker).

Gannett Company owns the newspaper and due to a decrease in revenue, its other newspapers have also cut head count. Right now the specific number of reporters and photographers getting the pink slip hasn’t been announced.

In addition, according to Motor City Muckraker, Jeff Taylor, an editor and Pulitzer Prize winner, is leaving the paper in order to run The Indianapolis Star.
