    I feel for the employees who’s pension is up in the air. The one guy who asked the question had been there 36 years. Even if they end up getting it or part of it that’s not a good way to go into the holidays.

    80 percent of the staff give or take will be gone within 6 months. It’s awful.

    Maybe of the writers, but the admin staff won't turn over like that.

    There were definitely some cuts when Gatehouse bought the Providence Journal a few years ago, but it is tough for me to measure the impact because Belo had slashed all of the local editions and bureau offices about eight years before so I can't remember who got axed when

    Word is Gatehouse wants to cut the number of Herald employees to 175 from the current 240 or so. Current staffers are invited to interview with Gatehouse for a job.

    Usually what happens when Gatehouse buys a paper is it tries to clear out experienced employees who earn decent salaries and replace them with cheap young employees.

    There are still a few very good reporters and editors at the Herald, along with some seriously lazy columnists and press release re-writers.

    Turning the paper into talk radio in print turns out to have been a poor strategy.

    Bet this is one of those moves aimed at getting employees to quit so they don't have to pay severance.
