Gannett Paper in Cincinnati Sees Red

Plunging ad revenues and a dropoff in circulation prompted Gannett Co., Inc., last week to slash 101 jobs at The Cincinnati Enquirer.

The Enquirer, founded in 1841, has a daily circulation of approximately 193,300 and a Sunday circulation of 272, 700, according to Editor & Publisher. The paper's total workforce before the latest round of cutbacks is between 800 and 920. Among the casualties was the staff of CinWeekly. The free arts and entertainment tabloid targeted readers in their 20s and 30s and was distributed mostly through newsboxes and other venues throughout Cincinnati.

Cincinnati's chilly reception to traditional media mirrors that of cities nationwide coping with the recession.

  1. If daily, Sunday and weekly circulation are all down, that's a three-way - Cincinatti's favorite form of chili.
