The Register-Guard in Eugene, Ore., said it is cutting 30 jobs, or about 11.5% of its workforce.
Publisher Tony Baker said the reductions were forced by an “unprecedented” shortfall in revenue, and rising newsprint costs.
Of the 30 jobs being cut, 13 are vacant positions that will not be filled. The paper, which has about 260 full-time employees, is offering buyouts and early retirement packages, but said it will make involuntary layoffs if those do not meet its target reductions.
