Breaking: Tally hits 1,400 as mass layoff deepens

Gannett’s nationwide newspaper downsizing has now claimed 1,400 jobs since yesterday morning, according to Gannett Blog reader accounts, plus new figures from Nashville (92 of 1,000 jobs cut); Poughkeepsie, N.Y. (59 of 250), and Greenville, S.C. (36 of 500).

Earlier today, two of the biggest worksites revealed their plans. The Des Moines Register is eliminating 74 of 801 jobs. And The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky., said it’s cutting 69 of its approximately 1,100 positions.
