“Review Journal” Eliminates A Dozen Positions

Nevada’s largest newspaper says it has laid off 12 employees and cut its special projects unit as part of a restructuring because of the economy. Officials for the Las Vegas Review-Journal said Tuesday the newspaper eliminated five newsroom positions, five production positions and two administrative jobs. Editor Michael Hengel says the move is because of the economy, not a reflection of new leadership at the newspaper owned by Stephens Media LLC. Hengel has been editor at the Review-Journal since December. He joined the newspaper one month after Stephens replaced its former publisher and editor and moved them to different roles in the company.
