Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin Eliminates Jobs
There have been additional job cuts at the Press & Sun-Bulletin.
The newspaper, owned by Virginia-based Gannett Company, has drastically reduced its workforce over the past three decades.
In a statement in Wednesday’s edition, president and publisher Sherman Bodner said all of those who were laid off were “valuable to our organization.” He said some were with the company for many years.
Bodner told WNBF News he did not wish to elaborate on the job cuts beyond what was reported by the newspaper.
More steps to reduce expenses have been implemented at the Elmira Star-Gazette and The Ithaca Journal.
A blog that covers Gannett Company published a memo Bodner sent to employees at the three regional sites.
Bodner thanked them for their patience during “this extremely difficult time.”
According to a count maintained by the blog, the total number of Gannett Company layoffs over the past month has risen to at least 423.
The Binghamton, Elmira and Ithaca papers are printed at the company’s Johnson City production facility, which opened seven years ago.
The Press & Sun-Bulletin editorial and advertising offices are on Lewis Road in Choconut Center.
