Gannett’s Westchester paper to lay off 50 of 192 newsroom employees

The Journal News is restructuring its news and advertising departments, says publisher Michael Fisch, and employees have to apply for a new position. A staffer tells Romenesko: “Our old job titles are history. We have until Friday to apply online for new jobs. Then next week, recruiters from Gannett will interview candidates. The final decision will be with local managers. Those people who are not picked for a new job will be out the door by Aug. 28.” || Read the memo.
