LAS VEGAS (AP) — The publisher of the Las Vegas Review-Journal says the newspaper has laid off staff in each of its departments after considering ways to make the operation more efficient.
Publisher Bob Brown declined Friday to say how many people lost their jobs in the latest round of layoffs. He says the layoffs affected all departments, including the newsroom. Brown says some of the newspaper’s operations hadn’t been re-evaluated in decades.
Brown says no one enjoys layoffs. But he expects Nevada’s largest newspaper to be a leaner organization committed to local news.
Brown says the newspaper will be printed on one press instead of two. He says the newspaper’s website also ended RJTV, a video outfit providing daily headlines.
Brown says the newspaper’s story count and delivery won’t be affected.
