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.
