10 jobs eliminated at Journal-World, weekly newspapers

Ten jobs in the news and advertising departments are being eliminated at the Journal-World and its sister weekly newspapers, managers told employees Thursday.

Additionally, other positions recently vacated by resignations will not be filled, said Ralph Gage, director of special projects.

The contraction of the work force is a direct result of the economic conditions affecting the company, he said. He added that the company will continue to evaluate its needs and opportunities in the markets it serves.
