Newspaper cutting staff in buyout plan



Published: Thu, October 19, 2006 @ 12:00 a.m.



CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Plain Dealer, Ohio's largest newspaper, is reducing its newsroom staff by about 17 percent through a voluntary buyout program, the newspaper reported Wednesday.

Of its 372 editorial employees, 64 accepted the offer, including reporters, editors, photographers, clerks and librarians.

The Plain Dealer offered the buyout in August to all of its 1,452 workers to help cut expenses. Several newspapers have taken similar steps as readers turn to television and the Internet for news, reducing newspaper circulation.
