Herald to shed 20 jobs

While everyone is focused on the looming 50-person cut in the Boston Globe’s newsroom, the Boston Herald yesterday quietly announced that it would soon shed 20 jobs.

Lisa van der Pool reports in the Boston Business Journal that the cuts won’t come exclusively from the Herald’s newsroom: publisher Pat Purcell says the reductions will involve “editorial and commercial” employees at both the paper and its Web site.

As at the Globe, the Herald will look for volunteers first.
