Reuters is moving its online newsroom from Toronto to Bangalore, taking with it 18 of 23 jobs.
The Toronto Star reports that the cuts represent a third of Reuters’ editorial operations in Toronto.
Reuters says it has increased the number of Reuters.com staff over the last eight months, but “as part of restructuring of our production staff, we’re moving some roles in our global online newsroom from Toronto to Asia. The online visuals desk remains in Toronto,” the company said in a statement.
Looks like the move has already begun, if this post is any indication.
