The Daytona Beach News-Journal will lay off 99 employees as part of a plan to reduce costs and prepare the company that operates the newspaper for sale.

Bureau offices in Palm Coast, New Smyrna Beach and DeLand will be closed.

The Sunday News-Journal Ideas section also will be discontinued, with its editorial pages moving to the front section of the newspaper.
