Daily News likely to lose slots

Brent Hopkins at the Daily News union blog says there was another meeting yesterday between editor Ron Kaye and executives at the parent Los Angeles News Group. While productive, he posts: "It's still likely that we'll lose a few jobs. It hasn't been decided how many, where or when, but Ron said that it would be far fewer than predicted last Friday. Apparently, the new plan will now go up the corporate chain for approval in the next few days, at which point we hope to have some more concrete news." As for the other LANG papers, sure sounds like they might be looking at deeper cuts in order to preserve jobs in Woodland Hills.
