Layoffs in Las Vegas*

An "unspecified number of layoffs" are part of a reorganization plan for the Las Vegas Sun, according to a staff report. The paper, which won a Pulitzer Prize last year, plans to merge its web and newspaper staffs as a way to save money.

From the Sun:
The changes were prompted ... by the need to better meet the information and marketing needs of the Las Vegas area and to create a sustainable business model in the face of the continued recession.
The story says the Associated Press and New York Times are also making staff cuts.

*Updated 12/2: About 20 staffers were laid off, according to a story on the Sun website.
