Suburban Journals Laying Off Today?


An anonymous tipster tells me (briefly) that Lee Enterprises'/St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Suburban Journals is laying off its "creative department" today. (By my tally, the last pink-slipping, of 45 employees, occurred last fall.)

Supposedly the creative jobs are being "outsourced." Not sure how many people may be affected, or if the tipster means the jobs will go overseas or to a U.S. contractor.

Anybody have details?
