Gannett Blog: Cincinnati Enquirer Publisher Announces Seven Employees Laid Off
A reader of Jim Hopkins' Gannett Blog sent him an email yesterday that Cincinnati Enquirer Publisher Margaret Buchanan appeared in the newsroom about 5 p.m. Wednesday and announced there had been seven people laid off, two of those in the Local Information Center. She blamed a drop-off in retail advertising that she said began in June and has continued unabated. She said she has not heard anything about a first-quarter furlough.
