Newsroom employment continues to slump. From 2018 through June, more than 28,000 employees at US newspapers have been laid off. 

Since the start of 2018, newsrooms have had a challenging time, resulting in industry-wide consolidation. The push to digital has been a significant contributor to this trend. As of recent, the coronavirus pandemic has triggered a nasty recession, collapsing ad revenue for media firms.

Newsroom job cuts this year is shaping up to be the worst on record, could even surpass the dark of 2008/09, wrote outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc.

The new report, titled "Newsrooms Suffer Worst Layoffs Through June on Record," reveals newsroom job cuts totaled 11,027 through June, up 169.8% from the 4,087 cuts announced in 1H19. :snip:
