Layoffs at the Review-Journal
Layoffs at the Review-Journal

Listen
AIR DATE: August 24, 2011

On Thursday 21 newsroom staffers were laid off at the Las Vegas Review-Journal. This is not the first round of layoffs in the newsroom this year. And a press crew was also laid off. So what is the future of the state's largest newspaper? What does it mean when the city hall and county government reporters are made redundant? Should finance reporters be laid off when the industry is blamed for the foreclosure crisis. We talk with some local journalists and business experts to see what can be done?

COMMENTS:
For more than 20 years the Review-Journal's judicial evaluation survey was an important criterion in informing voters which judges should be retained and which should be voted out. This year the RJ laid off all of those who organized that survey and reported its results. What will replace that source of information for voters?
