Amarillo Globe News Announces Layoffs

The Globe-News announced that two dozen positions will be eliminated.

The layoffs will be effective as of today. The publisher Les Simpson said "This is not something that was easy to do or that we took lightly, but the current economic conditions and the outlook for 2009 forces us, like many other businesses, to make changes."

Simpson added  "While the Amarillo economy is better than most, many of our larger national advertisers are being impacted by the slowing national economy."
