A couple of weeks ago I posted about an email that I received claiming that 230 layoffs were coming at 1 Herald Plaza. Well now Miami New Times editor Chuck Strouse is reporting that there's more smoke with regards to the possible layoffs fire:
Rumors have been swirling around the newsroom for the last two or three weeks that McClatchy is considering a 10 to 15 percent cutback in Miami and Broward – which could mean as many as 50 members of the newsroom staff – which is somewhere around 320 – according to sources familiar with the budgets...Bob Norman has more at The Daily Pulp (which incidentally has not put Herald Watch on his blogroll despite the fact that he's been on mine since the inception of this blog).
At least one staff member has approached Herald editor Anders Gyllenhaal with the idea – and he responded noncommittally. “He really didn’t know what to say,” the Herald staff member recalls.
H/T to McClatchy Watch for the Pulp link.
