Riverside layoffs hit

Sister newspaper, the Press-Enterprise in Riverside, Calif., laid off about 30 employees Thursday, according to multiple blogs.

Nearly a third of the cuts came from the newsroom. The losses were roughly the number that Corporate had announced it would eliminate.

The notifications came midafternoon, according to the well-regarded LAObserved blog. The management called a staff meeting hours later. Names then trickled out locally about the same time.

Throughout the coverage, one blog also reported that the Press-Enterprise is apparently leasing space in its building.
