The A.H. Belo cuts came through today at the Dallas Morning News where 200 people were laid off. Belo had announced in January that it planned to eliminate 500 jobs throughout all its holdings.

The Dallas Morning News layoffs affected every department, according to John McKeon, president and general manager, in a Morning News report. That includes various niche products and associated companies, such as the Denton Record-Chronicle; Al Día, a Spanish-language publication; and a printing operation called DFW Printing Co.

Dallas-based Belo also owns The Providence Journal and The Press-Enterprise of Riverside, Calif. As of the end of 2008, A.H. Belo had 2,950 full-time employees and 400 part-time employees, according to the the Morning News report that cited a recent regulatory filing.
