Gazette reduces staff

Gazette reduces staff

The Daily Gazette today laid off 16 employees.

The Daily Gazette today laid off 16 employees.

The cuts, which included newsroom staffers, were prompted by adverse

business conditions, particularly by declines in advertising revenue and

the high cost of newsprint.

In the past six months, the paper has taken other steps to boost revenue

and reduce costs, including earlier staff reductions and elimination of

the weekly TV supplement.

The measures are similar to those taken by newspapers across the country.

"Our staff will continue to produce a high quality newspaper that will

serve our readers and advertisers in the Capital Region," said Dan Beck,

the company's general manager.
