Review-Journal Cuts Staff Positions
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Las Vegas Review-Journal is eliminating its managing editor, city editor and sports editor positions in a reorganization that will leave two deputy editors overseeing the newsroom.
The paper reported on its website that the art director, features editor, editorial page editor and business editor positions will also be cut.
Editor Michael Hengel says it will allow the newspaper to focus on content gathering for both the print edition and its website. Hengel says the R-J is filling four reporting positions, for a total of 120 journalists.
