    Are these editorial positions or overall? Anyone know how many employees over there?

    You could try reading the link.

    The Herald's executive editor, Anders Gyllenhaal, said in a separate e-mail the layoffs include 33 full-time and eight part-time newsrooms positions. He said some remaining staff will see their hours cut.

    Latest in at least one South Florida media blog is that this will happen by Friday.

    Lots of friends and former co-workers down there. Wow. This sucks. Good luck to all.

    "All management bonuses have been cut this year, too."

    I hope this means eliminated as opposed to reduced.

    And the hits keep coming.

    As a Herald alum and current subscription customer, I'm thinking about ya, gang.
