Owner: Lee Enterprises and The Capital Times Co.
A buyout offer is targeting the sports and video departments. In a memo to employees published on Lee Watch, Wisconsin Sate Journal publisher Bill Johnson and Capital Times publisher Clayton Frink said: “We have looked at all areas of our operation for efficiencies and budget cuts, but we are not able to reach our budget expectations through non-personnel reductions. We need to eliminate multiple positions in the combined newsrooms, and the sports and video departments are the primary areas which will experience the reductions.” The memo did not give a deadline, but said “approximately four full-time positions” will be cut.
