Orlando Sentinel reorganization plan will eliminate about 24 jobs

Voluntary separation packages will be offered to FT employees with at least 10 years of service as part of the plan to reduce the staff over the next 4-6 weeks. Jobs may also go in the pressroom and packaging dept.

The restructuring plan "divides the newsroom into news-gathering and production teams, moving away from the news desk system that assigns groups of reporters and editors to produce specific sections of the paper."

Story in today's Sentinel and editor's memo to the staff.
