Gannett Cuts Managers

    Apologies if this is has been posted before, but Gannett is cutting 100 managers from their papers.

    I don't have a link, but here's the AP story on it.

    Gannett Co. is eliminating about 100 management jobs at its newspapers across the country on top of about 1,000 job cuts, including 600 layoffs, announced last month.

    Neither round of cuts affects Gannett's flagship newspaper, USA Today.

    The nation's largest newspaper publisher announced the latest cuts Tuesday as revenue declines faster than anticipated in the face of the weakening economy.

    Company spokeswoman Tara Connell says circulation, finance and other functions are being consolidated into four regional groups. Most of the cuts affect employees who have performed those duties at individual newspapers.

    Gannett has its headquarters in McLean, Va.

    So, those 100 aren't more in editorial?

    At least at my shop, those cuts were the ones announced last month that took effect Aug. 27.

    As long as you've been assimilated, you won't have to worry about cuts.

    It's hard not to get frustrated when you read this.

    Heavy drinking always seems to get me through such times.

    A good knife can cut both ways.
