Richmond Times-Dispatch

More furloughs at Media General

Media General told its employees Thursday that they must take 15 unpaid days between now and the end of the year.

Large round of layoffs at the T-D

The Times-Dispatch told 28 editorial staffers and31 non-newsroom employees Thursday that they were no longer needed and could leave immediately. Several of the laid-off workers had decades of experience, which likely means their salaries were higher than the younger reporters and might be one reason they were cut.

So long,

Media General’s fling with the domain name is coming to an end. The company plans to phase out and re-brand with a similar format, according to information Media General provides to potential advertisers.  Media General owns the Times-Dispatch.
