Belo’s largest circulation newspaper is downsizing:
The Dallas Morning News said today that 111 newsroom employees have accepted buyouts.
“The number of confirmed acceptances meets our strategic newsroom realignment goals, and we have a very deep and capable team of about 450 professionals to continue producing a newspaper of distinction,” Jim Moroney, publisher of the paper, said in a statement. “As we empower reporters and photographers to further apply methods in new media to communicate stories, our emphasis will remain squarely on excellence in every regard.”
Translation: The writers and graphics people we have left will largely depend on trolling the Internet for information.
