The World announced today that it will terminate 28 employees, including 26 in the newsroom, in order to cut expenses.
We have no inside knowledge on the paper's finances, but such cuts are bound to reduce the paper's ability to cover local and regional news, a bad development for readers and the Tulsa community.
Oklahoma's other major newspaper, The Daily Oklahoman, announced about 150 layoffs in 2008. Some of Tulsa's television stations have also cut back their staffing.
