By: Ian Donnis | Rhode Island Public Radio

Twenty-two members of the Providence Newspaper Guild were laid off Tuesday, as part of New Media Investment Group’s acquisition of Rhode Island’s statewide newspaper, including the Providence Journal’s well-respected longtime metro columnist, Bob Kerr.

The cuts, which also include some separate non-Guild positions, were implemented by the ProJo ahead of the closing of New Media’s purchase of the Journal. New Media Investment Group is the corporate parent of GateHouse Media.
