New layoffs announced at Chicago Tribune

The Chicago Tribune has notified its employees that several members of its newsroom staff will leave the paper by the end of the week.

Editor Gerould Kern's memo to employees on Wednesday didn't specify the number of layoffs or who was leaving. Tribune spokesman Michael Dizon declined to comment on internal matters.
