Buyouts offered at The Gazette, Washington Post’s community newspapers in Maryland

The Gazette
The buyouts were mentioned at the bottom of a story announcing that Chuck Lyons is moving from CEO to chairman of Post-Newsweek Media, the business division that includes The Gazette: “In an unrelated development, Gazette executives announced Monday that because of the sluggish economy and highly competitive environment, they are implementing a voluntary buyout program with incentive packages for editorial and creative services employees who have at least 18 years of employment with the company.” The Gazette newspapers are published in Montgomery, Frederick and Prince George’s counties.
