Raleigh News & Observer update

Alan Wolf at Raleigh's News & Observer says cuts at the N&O are likely:

The plan is likely to include further job cuts, including some at The News & Observer Publishing Co. The Raleigh company eliminated 233 full-time positions in the past year through voluntary buyouts, outsourcing and other steps. The company now has 613 full-time positions.
So how many will be laid off? And when?

If anybody knows, they aren't saying.

John in Carolina is following developments at the N&O. Publisher Orage Quarles told John by email he will advise his staff first before releasing any information.

Memo from Quarles here.
