GateHouse Makes More Staffing Cuts After Merger Announcement
Will Gannett and GateHouse-owned newspapers expect more cuts and consolidations?
A week after announcing a merger with Gannett in a deal valued at $1.4 billion, GateHouse Media cuts close to 20 reporters at least four papers, reports Poynter. Publishers Daily says the newsroom cuts affected The Oklahoman, Palm Beach Post, Cape Cod Times and the Worcester Telegram and Gazette. The Oklahoman lost 14 employees, including five from the newsroom. GateHouse purchased The Oklahoman last fall, laying off 37 employees, including 15 from the newsroom, according to Poynter.
