Cuts at McClatchy's online newsroom

Posted by on Thu, Sep 18, 2008 at 10:47 AM

It's sad to see the remnants of Nando Times, once the most innovative online operation in the daily newspaper business, being cut down at a time when newspapers need to focus on their online operations more than ever.

The N&O reports today that its parent company, McClatchy, cut 16 jobs, or 11 percent of the workforce, from McClatchy Interactive. About 10 of these people are newsroom employees; others wrote code and worked on business development, the story said. It was unclear from the story how many of these people work in Raleigh.

Yesterday was the deadline to accept buyout offers that were extended earlier this month to every single employee in The N&O's newsroom. We'll see the announcement of more departures and, likely, layoffs on Monday.
