Gannett eliminates 206 jobs at its 6 NJ newspapers

Gannett Co. Inc. has eliminated 206 positions at its six newspapers in New Jersey due to declining advertising revenues and the worsening economy.

Gannett, the nation's largest newspaper company, announced in October that it planned a 10 percent work force cut nationwide in response to declining revenue. The latest reductions follow a 3 percent cut announced in August.

The company began notifying affected employees Tuesday at the Asbury Park Press in Neptune, the Courier-Post in Cherry Hill, the Home News Tribune in East Brunswick, the Courier News in Bridgewater, the Daily Record in Parsippany and The Daily Journal in Vineland.
