From an anonymous tipster:
I was laid off Wednesday afternoon. I had been writing at the Argus Leader in Sioux Falls for a year-and-a-half. I hear there were 24 more positions being cut.

Heard a rumor tonight that the Argus Leader might go to Sunday-only publication and Web the rest .... any word to whether this is true?

I highly doubt that is true. The Argus is doing very well compared to other newspapers.

The reductions were 21 not 25.

There were a few posts and I received a detailed anonymous tip saying 25. I'm sure you're right, but do you have details? Was there 21 layoffs and four positions eliminated or something like that?

I'll wait to update it, but thank you for letting us know.

I'm Erica; I keep track of layoffs at Paper Cuts, http://graphicdesignr.net/papercuts/.

The Argus Leader cut 21 positions, but said "about half" were open positions. The paper ran a story about the job cuts: http://www.argusleader.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2009907100310

Does anyone know if how many that "about half" is?

Hi Erica, thanks for the post.

I've been hesitant to update information on here because I received a note from someone saying they were laid off at the Argus Leader and said in their meeting, they were told "25 positions were eliminated." Obviously the story is credible, but I've wondered how many were layoffs, if the number 25 was wrong or if there is something else to it or just what is missing here.

Anyone in Sioux Falls know the specifics?
