Report: Miami Herald employees bracing for more cuts

Bill at Random Pixels is reporting Miami Herald employees are worried about another round of job cuts:
A source at the Herald tells me that despite two rounds of buyouts in the space of three months, some staffers are bracing for more bad news.

Executive editor Anders Gyllenhaal has already told his staff that more cuts in the newsroom may be necessary - as early as January. As many as 10 more staffers may lose their jobs.

The newsroom buzz is that with the previous round of cuts taking a toll on reporters, photographers and support staff, some senior editors may now find their heads on the chopping block.

My source tells me that some of them [editors] are sitting at their desks with "thousand-yard stares. They're shell-shocked."

The Herald cut 250 positions in June, and another 119 positions in September.
