GateHouse Media Lays Off 200 in ‘Small Restructuring’
The company’s second round of layoffs in 2019, gutting newsrooms across the country
GateHouse Media, one of the largest newspaper publishers in the United States, is laying off as many as 200 employees in a company reorganization. Of those 200 or so employees, a large majority of non-reporting positions will be moved to reporting positions, said Mike Reed, CEO of GateHouse parent New Media Investment Group (NYSE: NEWM), in an interview with Poynter. “We are doing a small restructuring – at least that’s what I would call it – that I’m sure will be misreported. We have 11,000 employees. This involves a couple of hundred,” Reed told Poynter.
