LA Times Cuts 300 Positions

LOS ANGELES -- Tribune Co.'s Los Angeles Times is cutting 300 positions and will shrink the number of daily sections to four
from five.

The paper's publisher, Eddy Hartenstein, informed staff in a memo on Friday.

Editor Russ Stanton said in a second memo that the cuts will include a 70-person reduction across the editorial department, or 11 percent, in the coming weeks.

Hartenstein said the move to reduce the number of sections will occur on March 2 and was intended to reap efficiencies in
operations, production and distribution.
