MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Herald is undergoing another round of staff cuts.
The newspaper reported Thursday that the Miami Herald Media Company announced 49 job reductions through a combination of buyouts and layoffs. That includes seven full-time and two part-time Herald newsroom staffers and four full-time and two part-time staffers from the El Nuevo Herald newsroom.
Herald Publisher David Landsberg said in a note to staff the move was a reflection of the volatile economy.
The Herald has already undergone significant cost-saving measures. About 175 employees lost their jobs last year in a 15 percent work force reduction, and remaining staff members endured pay cuts of 5 percent to 10 percent.
The Herald is owned by the McClatchy Co.
