The Herald-Mail Co., citing poor economic conditions, has cut six jobs from its 132-person work force.

Editor and publisher John League said in a story posted on The Herald-Mail’s Web site on Thursday that three jobs were in the newsroom and three were in advertising.

The six positions are 4.5 percent of the company’s work force.

League said because the newspaper depends on advertisers, when their business is bad, The Herald-Mail’s business is bad.

He said the cuts should help The Herald-Mail get through what might be several more months of struggle.
