Chicago Tribune to cut 80 newsroom jobs

Mirroring the struggles the newspaper industry is experiencing nationwide, The Chicago Tribune announced Tuesday it is laying off 80 people in its newsroom and is reducing the number of pages in the publication.

The number laid off is actually 55, since 25 of those jobs were unfilled positions, left over from the last round of layoffs.

The Tribune’s sister paper in Los Angeles (The Times) is also going through a restructuring, with 150 layoffs and reduction in pages.
