Hack and sack (updated*,**)
Tribune starts the agonizing process of firing up to 150 editorial employees today. LA Times Publisher David Hiller is the first to go, according to Tell Zell. Here's the story in the Times.
Kevin Bronson, deputy editor of The Guide and long-time music writer, also received a pink slip today. I won't try to keep a running tally, since I don't have the inside sources other bloggers do, but I'll try to link to any updates I see.
*Update: Copy editor Mark Masek, who joined the Times after leaving the San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group, is on the cut the list, he reports in the comments section.
**Update: Kevin Roderick at LA Observed is putting together a list of those leaving the Times, although he wisely chooses to get independent confirmation before he starts naming names. He says the 150 are being culled through a combination of buyouts and layoffs, with both sides receiving the same deal.
