New York: US daily The New York Times will
lay off at least 25 editorial employees at the news service
next year and would move the operation to Florida-based
newspaper Gainsville Sun.
According to a report on the newspaper`s website, the New
York Times News Service would cut at least 25 editorial
employees next year.
The newspaper also said it would move the editing work of
the news service to the Gainesville Sun, a Florida-based
newspaper owned by The New York Times Company.
The report said 25 of 30 news service jobs would be
eliminated at the main office in New York, with five employees
retaining their positions.
The news service uses completed articles and re-edits
them for wire distribution.
The newspaper said the current job cuts do not count
toward the planned elimination of 100 jobs in The New York
Times newsroom. That 8 per cent reduction is to take effect by
the end of the year.
