New York City, the center of the nation's information industry, has lost nearly 60,000 communications jobs since 2000, including in publishing and broadcasting, the comptroller's office said Wednesday.

The New York City metro area lost 44,500 communications jobs from 2000 to 2007, and has since lost another 15,100 jobs through August of this year, according to the comptroller's office. Preliminary figures show further declines for September, spokesman Michael Loughran said.
