McClatchy's Miami Herald to cut about 175 jobs

The publisher of The Miami Herald says about 175 employees will lose their jobs as the newspaper cuts costs.
In a memo Wednesday, David Landsberg says remaining full-time staff will have their salaries reduced. Those employees also will get one-week unpaid furloughs, starting in April.
The Herald's executive editor, Anders Gyllenhaal, says in a separate e-mail that the layoffs include 33 full-time and eight part-time newsroom positions. He says some remaining staff will see their hours cut.
The newspaper is also eliminating 30 vacant positions and leasing one floor of the Herald's downtown Miami headquarters. All management bonuses have been cut this year, too.
The cuts are part of a 15 percent reduction announced Monday by the newspaper's owner, McClatchy Co.
