Yet Another Round of Layoffs at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Posted By on Fri, Aug 21, 2009 at 10:30 AM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch newsroom last night lost another four people: three news researchers (who compile material for reporters) and a photo assistant.

Executive editor Arnie Robbins announced the cuts in a memo to staff this morning, saying, "We left a handful of positions unfilled over the course of the summer, and reduced some of our fixed costs (wire services, travel, etc.) to keep the job losses to a minimum. Still, it hurts and we are sorry to have to give you this news."

According to a brief published this morning on, the Post also laid off fourteen employees in its operations and advertising departments.

Today marks the third round of pink-slipping at the P-D this year. The fall of '08 saw several rounds of layoffs as well.
