Gannett Cuts 70 More Jobs at Westchester Newspaper

The Journal News, a Westchester area newspaper owned by Gannett, told all 288 of its news and advertising sales employees on Wednesday that their jobs were being eliminated and they would need to apply for redefined positions by the end of the week.

After the redefined jobs are filled, there will be 20 fewer positions in advertising and 50 fewer positions in news, reducing the newsroom staff (which includes Web employees) by more than a quarter.

Last week, the paper laid off 57 employees in areas like production, finance, and information technology.
