Post-Dispatch hit with more layoffs

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch laid off 23 employees Thursday and Friday from the newsroom, advertising and production, the newspaper announced.

Sports content editor David Sheets, deputy managing editor Stephen Parker, assistant metro editor Tim Bross and food editor Judy Evans were among those given the pink slip.

“Along with far too many colleagues, I've been laid off from the Post-Dispatch,” Evans wrote in a Twitter message to her followers today. “I'm still in shock, and pondering my future.”

The cuts include four news managers.

The Post-Dispatch is owned by Davenport, Iowa-based Lee Enterprises, which recently came out of Chapter 11 bankruptcy after reorganizing its debt.
