How many applied for buyouts?

Dateline: Thu 26 Jul 2007

Editor and Publisher is reporting that the Guild at the Star asked Dennis Ryerson for a list of those who applied for buyouts, but the request was denied.

The number I've heard was 83 applicants, including as many as 30 from the newsroom. Many of the reporters, editors, etc. were from the bureaus. The final day for those chosen is Friday Aug. 3. They will get 2 weeks severance pay for each year they've worked.

Thanks to old buddy Jim Burns for sending along the Editor and Publisher link.

Also, from another source: the Gannett Nashville paper is now offering buyouts. Stick around, more to come. Anything to keep those profit margins up, right?
