Tribune Lawyer: More Layoffs Coming To Newspapers

Well, I posted my thoughts on it Saturday and today we get confirmation: More layoffs coming to Tribune. From today's AP article:

[Tribune attorney Kevin] Lantry said the company anticipates "a number of layoffs" this year, but he did not provide a figure, or details on how much money the severance program might involve.

"I hate to, in a public forum, articulate anticipated layoffs," explained Lantry, who said after the hearing that the situation is fluid and that the company's current projections could very well change.

Let's just hope the Sun-Sentinel is spared too much of a hit. I'm going to say it again: Sell the newspapers Tribune and go gently into that good night. Don't drain them of every ounce of blood before you die.
