The Tribune Co. cuts continue. Management of the flagship Chicago Tribune began telling staffers on July 8 that it will cut 80 of the current 578 newsroom positions by the end of next month, as well as at least 13% of pages published per week. The only semblance of a silver lining is that management will only have to trim between 55 and 58 positions because it did not replace other recently departed employees.


Elsewhere at Tribune Co. newspapers, the Baltimore Sun, announced it will eliminate its standalone business section. Last week, the Los Angeles Times disclosed that it will cut 250 jobs.
