The Citizen Writes About Itself

Posted By on Fri, Dec 5, 2008 at 8:04 AM

The Tucson Citizen has finally written a fairly good story about the layoffs there.

The CliffsNotes from Mark B. Evans' piece: "Fewer than 12" Tucson employes will get laid off. Two Citizen staffers are gone, while one took a buyout. The rest of the layoffs--"single digits" will come from Tucson Newspapers (the merged business operation of the Arizona Daily Star and the Citizen), and Tucson Newspapers prez Mike Jameson said not all of the layoff-ees will be told until Monday.

All, in all, considering some of the slash-and-burns going on across the country, the Tucson Newspapers layoffs were rather light. That's something to be thankful for this holiday season--though it's no consolation to the "Fewer than 12" employees who are now ex-employees.
