NWA newspapers cut five jobs

Posted By on Fri, Aug 3, 2012 at 10:51 AM

I don't know if this is paywalled or not, but the Northwest Arkansas website of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette says the photo departments of the regional D-G and the remnant Stephens Media newspapers distributed with the D-G are to be combined, meaning five photo staff people will lose their jobs.

Is that all there is? City Wire reported a while back that an outside consultant had been brought in to recommend ways to improve the profitability of the joint newspaper operation. It hasn't been as profitable as owners expected an end of the regional newspaper war would be.

“While we continue to evaluate all areas for efficiency, the changes we are announcing today are limited to the photo staffs,” [Northwest Arkansas Newspapers President Jeff] Jeffus wrote in the memo.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
