The Winston-Salem Journal announced 13 job cuts yesterday as part of a continuing effort to reduce costs in a weak and unstable economy.
Including vacancies, 23 positions were eliminated out of a full-time staff of 260. The Journal also has about 85 part-time employees.
The job cuts affect the newsroom, production, advertising, circulation and finance departments. Two newsroom staffers were let go, and three vacant positions won’t be filled.
The affected employees will receive severance packages.
