‘San Francisco Chronicle' to fire 8.5% of workers

Published on .

San Francisco--The San Francisco Chronicle announced it will lay off 220 workers, or 8.5% of its work force. The newspaper, reeling from a 20% drop in ad revenue, is firing people across most departments, including publishing and offline and online editorial staffers. After the layoffs, the Chronicle will have a staff of 2,400. The Chronicle's fortunes are similar to those of newspapers including The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, which are also trimming staff due to plunging ad revenue.
