Tribune Not 'Chi' About Cutting Staffers

Reporters, editors and managers are among the 15 newsroom personnel pink-slipped by The Chicago Tribune today, Crain's Chicago Business reported.

Empty chairs are becoming commonplace as the Trib last month received fewer than 10 acceptances from editorial staffers of a voluntary buyout offer (see "TUOL" post 1/17/12), and last July laid off 20 employees. The Tribune Co., which also owns The Los Angeles Times and 23 television stations nationwide, is still in the throes of a protracted Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Newsroom Events Director Sarah Beardsley also has departed the Tribune, according to Crain's.
