Downsizing at the Tribune Company

The Los Angeles Times is expected to announce staff reductions of 150 sometime today, as well as the Chicago Tribune, where 100 staffers will be leaving the company through voluntary buyouts.

No word of cutbacks at other Tribune properties has been mentioned yet, but I’m sure in the next few days something will be said.

Seventy of the buyouts at the Los Angeles Times will be made in the editorial department, with the other eighty from un-named departments at this time. Needless to say, many are concerned regarding their future employment at the newspaper.
