Close to 100 positions have been lost at the Newport News Daily Press over the last few years and now 14 more positions have been cut in the newsroom, operations, finance and advertising departments.
"Cutting reporters hurts the product," said Daily Press Publisher Digby Solomon. "Cutting salespeople hurts the product."Cutting the folks that support the journos and sales reps — editorial assistants, librarians and clerks to name a few, hurts the product too. Just ask a reporter or salesperson.
