The Cincinnati Enquirer laid off 14 people Thursday, Lisa Benson reports in the Cincinnati Business Courier.

Sources told the Courier that the cuts included 7-9 positions in the newsroom, including writers, editors and photographers.

Michael Monks reports in The River City News that reporter Jim Hannah, Community Press editor Mark Emral and editorial editor David Holthaus were let go, as were “Two photographers and a graphics employee.”

The Enquirer had about 500 employees last June, Benson reports, “down from about 800 in 2012.”
