Springfield Republican Lays Off 30, at Least 12 From Editorial

leave a comment »

The Springfield (Mass.) Republican laid off 30 people on Monday, June 29. The layoffs include three editors, three photographers and six reporters, a source has told News Cycle.

Unfortunately, there has been no official announcement from management. The newspaper has a daily circulation of about 84,000 and is owned by Newhouse Newspapers, which in turn is owned by Advance Publications. Advance has in the past been tight lipped about staff reductions. For instance, its American City Business Journals recently suffered a round of cutbacks without any public acknowledgement.
