As many as 844 Michigan employees of the Journal Register Co. could lose their jobs if the media company successfully sells most of its assets.

In a filing with the state, Journal Register, which owns newspapers including the Macomb Daily, the Oakland Press and the Morning Star in Mount Pleasant, said it plans to lay off 844 workers in mid-April after it sells most of its assets to 21st CMH Acquisition Co.

Layoffs include 295 in operations, 156 in advertising, 131 in editorial, 125 in circulation, 92 in administration and three executives.
