Involuntary reductions – that’s the new term for the Tribune company, as it gears up for the next round of job cuts.
According to Crain’s, the Chicago Tribune plans to eliminate 80 newsroom positions. The paper’s managing editor for news, its Washington bureau chief and its public editor left Friday.
Tribune is cutting more than 500 jobs at all of its daily newspapers and trimming editorial content to save on newsroom and newsprint costs.
Tribune will announce its second-quarter earnings this week.
