INFO FROM BEFORE THE LAYOFFS BEGAN:

Bob Dickey, president of Gannett's U.S. Community Publishing division, wrote in a memo, "Approximately 1,400 employees will be impacted by the job reductions across the division."

Cincinnati Enquirer publisher Margaret Buchanan wrote in a memo, "I would estimate that as many as 100 employees will be affected," at the Enquirer.

Steve Silberman, publisher of the Statesman Journal in Oregon, said "a handful of jobs" will be eliminated by July 9. The Statesman Journal employs 252.

Jim Strauss, publisher of the Great Falls Tribune in Montana said there would be no layoffs at his paper. "I attribute that to the local economy holding up better than the nation as a whole and also to the strong efforts of the staff," he said.
