Washington Post Announces Plan for Job Cuts

From a New York Times story by Benjamin Mullin headlined “Washington Post Publisher Announces Plan for Job Cuts”:

Fred Ryan, the publisher of The Washington Post, said in a meeting with employees that the company would eliminate some positions early next year, including some in the newsroom, as the company looks to focus on different coverage areas.

Mr. Ryan said that the cuts would amount to a single-digit percentage of staff, adding that the company would finish its plans over the coming weeks. He said there would not be an overall reduction in the newsroom’s head count because the cuts would be offset by hiring in other areas. The newsroom has more than 1,000 employees.
