The tough econmic climate has reached down to Cincinnati's Media landscape again and this time hit altweekly CityBeat. In a blog post yesterday, publisher Dan Bockrath announced a new leadership team for the newspaper and stated that they have "eliminated or restructured several staff positions." No details on the exact staff members or positions affected were listed in the article. This is sad news. I very much love CityBeat. I've regularly criticize articles and columns in the newspaper, and always tried to be fair. I hope to continue to read the paper every Wednesday, filled with local news, arts, and culture articles.
I wish the best for new leadership of the newspaper. I hope they can provide new momentum to a much needed institution for the Cincinnati Community. I also hope all of the individuals who were affected in the layoffs are able to move on to new jobs as quickly.
