LANG does appear to be trimming its ranks on the business side. I'm told four people working in the classified ad department at the San Gabriel Valley Tribune were laid off today.
Update: I'm told two photographers, Eric Reed and Jeff Malet, were laid off at the San Bernardino Sun/Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.
Update II: An anonymous comment says the receptionist at the Daily Bulletin did not lost her job after all, so I've removed that line from an earlier update. Since most of the information I have about layoffs is sketchy right now - and some of it is conflicting - I'll wait to update again until I have more solid information.
UPDATE III: San Gabriel Valley Tribune sports reporter Doug Padilla was laid off.
