  • New Bedford editor stepping down to spare paper layoffs

    Boston Globe - 12/09/2014

    Northeastern University journalism professor Dan Kennedy said this is not the first time an editor has quit to avoid implementing job cuts. But Kennedy said such moves can be futile gestures, particularly at large media companies that often adhere to staffing formulas and ratios.

    “It’s just another day in the shrinkage of legacy newspapers, unfortunately,” Kennedy said. “For every Boston Globe and Washington Post that’s building up, there are hundreds of papers that continue to shrink. It’s a sad thing to see.”
