The McClatchy Co.-owned Miami Herald has slashed its staff by 49 through combined layoffs and voluntary buyouts.

Seven full-time and two part-time newsroom slots at the Herald were eliminated, as were four full-time and two part-time editorial positions at El Nuevo Herald, according to a story in Business Week. The cost-cutting measure comes a year after staffers endured pay cuts and the Herald underwent a 15 percent reduction in its work force in response to sagging circulation and a severe drop in advertising lineage.
