Less is Less

CityBeat is reporting that the Enquirer will be cutting staff by 10%. I assume based on the article that this is above and beyond the voluntary buyout packages offered earlier this year.

No word on what part of the paper will be affected. Previously, there was a report of centralization of certain back office functions, so this could be related to that reduction.

If more content staff is reduced, we will have no paper left. Arts coverage has suffered so massively. The Enquirer is turning into a local TV station in how it structures everything. The local content is vanishing and no return can be foreseen.
