There have been lots of rumors over the past few days about changes at The Oregonian. The paper confirmed many of them yesterday – home delivery will drop to 4x days a week – Wednesday Friday, Saturday and Sunday, they plan to move out of their current building downtown, and it is laying off over 35 staff members while they spin-off the operation into two different companies.
Here is some more information: Restaurant reporter Michael Russell has confirmed that he will be continuing work in his current capacity. However, WWeek says that restaurant reviewer David Sarasohn position has been eliminated. In addition, Eater is reporting that MIX, the restaurant review, recipes and food and drink magazine will also cease production. Too bad – I liked the magazine.
