Update on timing of D-Day


Sources with knowledge of the layoff preparations say newsroom employees at some A.H. Belo properties could be notified about their future sooner than Friday, Oct. 17. Any staff member in that situation would work up to Oct. 17, the sources say.

There are no specific details about any single property at this time, aside from Providence Journal.

For the Dallas Morning News, this means Oct. 17 could be the completion of the layoff process rather than the day of notification. If you remember, Corporate had given Providence's newspaper union the date of Oct. 17. The laid-off employees are now leaving Oct. 10.

Caveats apply: Until A.H. Belo makes a public announcement, anything can change.
