The newspaper bloodbath

Posted By on Tue, Aug 19, 2008 at 11:16 AM

You've read here about mass newspaper layoffs and the belt-tightening (wage and job freezes) at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. You might not know that the Gannett Corp. still has a print beachhead in Arkansas at the Baxter Bulletin. The company is going through a painful retrenchment, with a 1,000-employee reduction in the company's national community newspaper workforce. An unauthorized Gannett blog run by former Arkansas Gazette business editor Jim Hopkins (he took a buyout from USA Today a while back) is keeping up with the layoffs. His latest list says three jobs will be lost at the Mountain Home newspaper.
