37 jobs cut at Nola.com|The Times-Picayune
NEW ORLEANS- Another round of layoffs has been announced at Nola.comThe Times-Picayune in New Orleans.
A story on the news organization's website says 28 full-time and nine part-time staffers are losing jobs. It says that will still leave 118 full-time journalists.
Nola Media Group President Ricky Matthews said it was a "difficult day," the result of "business realities faced by media organizations around the country." But, he said, the state's largest and most experienced news staff remain.
The move came more than three years after Nola Media Group - a subsidiary of privately held Advance Publications Inc. - stunned the New Orleans community with the layoffs of 74 newsroom employees and a cutback in home delivery of The Times-Picayune to three editions per week.
