Owner: Thirteenth Street Media
Effective: April 15, 2009
The managing editor and features editor were laid off. “My position was ‘absorbed,’ I was told,” former managing editor Ty Bowers told the Tucson Weekly. Bowers started at the weekly paper in May 2006; Thirteenth Street Media bought it in December 2007. “We had an editor, myself, a Marana reporter, a photographer — eight people at the newspaper (on the editorial side). Now it’s down to two, plus the editor/publisher,” Bowers said.
