The Gazette Company announces restructuring

The Gazette Company, which includes Gazette Communications, The Gazette newspaper and KCRG-TV, announced Tuesday that it is eliminating about 100 jobs as part of a companywide reorganization.

In a news release, Chief Executive Office and President Chuck Peters said the restructuring has been in the works for two years but changes were needed after last summer's flooding and the current economic crisis. He said many of the company's advertisers have been affected, and he cited increased newsprint costs.
