Editor Smith To Announce 4 SR Newsroom Openings Tuesday

Tomorrow, we’ll be posting four additional positions, including two reporter jobs, one online multimedia producer position and one copy desk position. Furthermore, we were already planning to fill an online programmer job, we filled a deputy news editor job last week and we will replace JoNel Aleccia, one of our top reporters, who resigned today to take a position as national health reporter with MSN. I’ll let you all know how those postings and rehires go as we work through that process. It will take a week or so as we are doing our best to rehire in accordance with our union contract. Meanwhile, there are a number of significant staff changes to be announced as we reposition ourselves to work with a smaller newsroom. We’ll be talking to editors and staffers in the next two days and I hope to post a new organization chart in this space by the middle to end of the week. We’re on track. And while I am devastated by our staff losses, I know we’ve reconfigured the newsroom in the best way possible to maintain our core functions and maybe even improve in a few areas/Editor Steve Smith, News Is A Conversation.
