Another 100 layoffs, says publisher Steve Carver.

Among them:  veteran political guy Mark Pazniokas, and Matt Eagan who (it seems) had been writing half the sports section.  Two veterans who offer insight and analysis. 

Duby McDowell’s blog has other links to the story here.   And here’s a link to a web site called the Hartford Courant Alumni Association and Refugee Camp.  There’s bound to be some very interesting and very sad observations there.

My deepest condolences to all.

    Scary stuff. Over here at New Mass. Media we’re all nervous about the cuts … and our company’s future.

    It’s so sad what’s happening to the newspaper industry. Nobody is safe. The New York Post just let Liz Smith go (who’s 86 and probably should retire anyway, but they wanted to save on her $125,000 salary). I love reading the paper. I like to curl up on the couch and go through the paper. I like getting all the flyers and coupons. I like to be able to cut out an article if need be. And I like the comics! It’s just not the same reading it on the computer.

  3. They dumped Liz Smith? Wow.

    Why worry. Look at how good Ken Keyeske’s doing as a free lance reporter. Just find a national figure, and piss them off on T.V.

  6. Gerry says:

    Yup. As easy as tossing a molotov cocktail.

  7. Peter Townsend says:

    Tribune should be carving up the over paid Carver himself.

    As soon as the corporate axeman became publisher, I knew none of us was safe.

    Glad I left long before the bloodshed.
