Stephens Media Laying Off Workers

The newsboy industry was equally hard hit.
The newsboy industry was equally hard hit.

You know how lay-offs for print reporting types are all the rage these days? Las Vegas-based Stephens Media, which has a large media footprint in Arkansas, doesn’t want to miss out on that sweet action.

Word on the street is that cutbacks are coming for the Stephens Washington, D.C., bureau, which will soon be operating as a one-man shop to service all the Stephens properties in Arkansas, Hawaii, Las Vegas and wherever else they are.

No word at this point on whether the cutbacks will hit the Little Rock Capitol bureau or any Stephens daily and weekly papers in Arkansas.

    Who’s getting the ax? Hopefully not the hard-working Aaron Sadler. And no, this is not Aaron Sadler writing.

    Yes, Sadler was one of the two cut loose.

    Layoffs hit Fort Smith this morning. Not sure of the body count yet. At least five, maybe more.
