Times-Picayune Said to Face Deep Cuts and May Cut Back Publication
Posted: 5/24/2012 | By: David Carr | The New York Times
The New Orleans Times-Picayune, which distinguished itself amid great
adversity during Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath, is about to enact
large staff cuts and may cut back its daily print publishing schedule,
according to two employees with knowledge of the plans.
Newspapers, which owns the Times-Picayune, will apparently be working
off a blueprint the company used in Ann Arbor, Mich., where it reduced
the frequency of the Ann Arbor News, emphasized the Web site as a
primary distributor of news and in the process instituted wholesale
layoffs to cut costs.
