The Las Vegas Review-Journal told staffers Tuesday that it’s laying off five editors and its art director.
I’ve confirmed that these journalists are leaving the paper (for now):
Mary Hynes — city editor
Frank Fertado — features editor
Joe Hawk — sports editor
Jim Wright — business editor
Ched Whitney — art director
Charlie Zobell — managing editor
In a restructuring, the paper is hiring one person to oversee news/business and another for features/sports and, I’m told, the above editors have been invited to apply for the positions.
I have left a message for editor Mike Hengel. His secretary says he’s in meetings.
