New layoff wave hits Arizona Republic

A new round of layoffs began Wednesday at the Arizona Republic as the newspaper’s parent company Gannett Inc. looks to trim 10 percent from its daily newspapers across the U.S.

Sources said 68 employees were laid off today, including 25 from the Republic's newsroom. The cuts could continue tomorrow.
