::Triad Newspaper Lays Off 41 Workers

By Elliott West, Raleigh Chronicle News Editor
Thursday June 7, 2007

GREENSBORO - The News & Record daily newspaper, which is owned by Virginia's Landmark Communications, has announced this week that the paper is laying off 41 workers.

"The effectiveness of the newspaper's daily operations will not be jeopardized," President and Publisher Robin Saul said on Thursday in a released statement. "We remain committed to providing both excellent journalism and the highest level of customer satisfaction."

The newspaper's article did not give many details, but according to EdCone.com, a blog written by Greensboro journalist and News & Record columnist Ed Cone, the layoffs were made in several departments including layoffs in the news room, library and copy desk, photo staff, and sports and news designers.

According to Cone's blog, several staffers were not happy with the way the announcement was made and one News & Record reporter even described it as a "bloodbath."

"Some newsroom reporters learned about the layoffs when they got calls from other newsrooms," one person was quoted as saying on the blog. "I'm so angry."

""There is a lot anger right in this newsroom. [Management] has known this was coming for a long time," another staffer was quoted as saying at EdCone.com

According to the blog, some of the staffers that were cut included:

--Eric Dyer, a high-profile former Raleigh reporter who is said to have spent his own money to follow the Edwards '04 campaign when the N&R wouldn't pay for travel.

--Maria Johnson, a well-regarded feature writer.

--Tom Taylor, who just recently began a B1 advice column.

--Monica Chen, a reporter in the High Point bureau who started just days ago.

In addition, the blog reported that staff had been laid off in the Rockingham County bureau of the newspaper.

The parent company of the News & Record, Landmark Communications, is headquartered in Norfolk, Virginia and owns several other media properties including the Weather Channel on cable and satellite networks.
