Veronica García, a National News Desk copy editor at the L.A. Times, is among the scores of employees who have been laid-off at the paper. It’s expected the Times will eliminate 250 positions in this round of cuts.
Veronica, who is currently Region 8 director for the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, has been at the Times for 17 years. Friday is her last day on the job.
Other Latinos laid off that we know of at this point:
Jesús Sánchez. At the Times since 1987, he’s covered several business section beats before becoming one of the first bloggers for the paper’s online news division.
Jaime Cárdenas. From intern to sports writer, his tenure as a staffer at the paper was brief. He would’ve celebrated his first year anniversary in August.
