LA Times Cuts California Section
The Los Angeles Times plans to lay off even more employees with the recent decision to rid the local news section. California news will now be folded in the front section alongside national and foreign news.
Quoted from a memo sent by publisher Eddy Hartenstein:
"In the coming weeks, we will introduce a number of changes to the way we do business, including a new sectional line-up for the paper. These are necessary to facilitate greater efficiencies in how we approach our operations, production and distribution and, as a result, we expect to eliminate approximately 300 positions."
Editorial will be reduced by 70 positions.
