More Than 1,900 Newspaper Jobs Lost in 2005

Ouch. According to an informal survey at E&P, 1,900 jobs were cut in 2005 alone. The article also lists the newspapers and the number.

With costs rising and circulation on the decline, newspaper companies have responded by trimming a considerable portion of their staffs this year. A review of past news reports offers up a startling number: more than 1,900 jobs have been cut from major and mid-sized newspapers over the past year. That figure does not include cuts at many smaller papers that don’t often garner the same headlines.
