Current buyout count

The number of staff members set to depart through the buyouts stands at 22.

That number is based on people who have directly confirmed they were accepted by Corporate and on reports of staffers openly discussing it. We have included the latter in the total but not yet listed their names.

If this holds, the newsroom fell well short of its buyout target of roughly 40 as expected. That could be mean layoffs in the works could be deep.

We continue to update the list of buyout takers and have broken it down based on department. Most people were reporters, copy editors, page designers and photographers, in addition to a couple of assistant editors.

If you would like to add your name to the list, e-mail

We also would take all job openings that you may know of.
