Changes at Tribune Company Newspapers

With so many employees abandoning the Los Angeles Times the past few weeks I can only wonder if this is part of the $100 million in budget slashing on the newspaper side of the Tribune Company?

After speaking with two reporters yesterday I learned no voluntary separation packages are being offered to other departments, other than Operations at the newspaper, at this time.

Maybe it's just coincidental that so many are leaving the newspaper at this moment, or do they know something that's not being shared, as everyone is being tight lipped as to what's going on internally at the newspaper.

The outlook for photographers at the newspaper is rather ominous as colleagues at other newspapers are being replaced by reporters with iPhones.

Stay tuned as we watch what transpires at a Tribune newspaper near you.
