70 layoffs at Tampa Tribune

The excellent Editor & Publisher website is reporting today that major changes are happening at The Tampa Tribune.

The Tampa Tribune will lay off about 70 employees as it pulls out of several Florida counties, combines previously separate newspaper sections, eliminates daily zoning, launches "hyper-local" Web sites, and trims another half-inch from the width of its print daily, the Media General newspaper said Tuesday.

Full-time employees will be offered severance packages when affected employees are informed in the next few days, the Tribune said.
