More layoffs at the Fort Collins Coloradoan

This past January,

the Fort Collins Coloradoan, a Gannett publication, instituted a furlough program

designed to save money and help preserve jobs. But it didn't prove to be the magic solution. In March,

the Coloradoan shut down its press and farmed out its printing at the eventual loss of more than forty jobs

. And now, in

a brief published today

, the paper announced that nine more jobs have been cut. The most chilling line: "With Thursday's layoffs, the

Coloradoan

has about 115 employees, or about half the work force it had at the beginning of 2007."

If only someone could promise that the reductions would end right there. But in this economy, and with what's happening to print journalism in general, no one can.
