Statesman Makes More Cuts in Newsroom

Posted By on Tue, Aug 16, 2011 at 5:54 PM

Bad news in the world of daily journalism is leaking out of the Idaho Statesman today.

The Idaho Business Review is reporting that the Statesman's already tiny newsroom was cut even further on Aug. 15, when nine positions were cut—including seven from the editorial department. IBR cites Statesman reporters who survived the bloodletting as saying that veteran reporters Anna Webb and Joe Estrella were among those cut, as were online editor Sara Cassinelli and copy editors Randall Post and Joi Topete.

It looks like this means surviving employees will be further doubling up on duties and the paper's new publisher, Mike Jung, will be arriving to a bare-bones newsroom.
