Willamette Week reports as many as 38 employees were laid off. In a statement sent to the weekly paper, Oregonian publisher N. Christian Anderson III said newsroom positions were not cut: “We did eliminate some positions in our company today. They were in production, circulation, finance and advertising support. They are part of our continuing effort to find efficiencies in our operations as we strengthen our financial performance.” Anderson would not confirm how many employees were laid off.
