-- Third layoff round at McClatchy’s Kansas City Star: The Kansas City Star’s newspaper and site may very well be the leaders in its market, as Publisher Mark Zieman says in this memo, that’s not going to prevent the paper from issuing a round of 50 layoffs. In all, McClatchy Watch noted that the paper cut 120 jobs in June, and another 65 posts in September at the McClatchy-owned pub.
There may be more to come. I was contacted by a reporter from a business publication earlier this week who is doing a story on McClatchy; we'll see if my blog get a mention there.
Now back to regularly scheduled activities.
