Baltimore Sun looking to buy out columnists, critics, copy editors

Daily Record
The Tribune-owned Baltimore Sun told the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild Wednesday that it wants to cut 20 to 25 positions, including 10 in the newsroom. The Sun aims to buy out two columnists, two critics, an editorial writer, two copy editors, two design editors and a photographer, according to Andrea K. Walker, a business reporter and newsroom chair for The Sun’s guild unit. The paper says this is its first buyout offer since 2008.

    The Sun desperately needs some new blood.  Times are changing and, sadly, its writers are still stuck in 1990.

    Yeah I was wondering if anyone else was getting into Tribune quietly sinking a little further – or did we forget about those sneaky LAT cuts the other week. I wonder who’s next…

    The fall of the Tribune Co. continues to accelerate. At some point simply managing the decline will no longer be an option. They will have to sell of their properties sooner or later. Why not have the fire sale now and pay off the creditors the best they can and move on? The newspapers may not have much value, but their TV stations do.
