Guardian confirms 'around 40' volunteers for redundancy, including Brook and Tryhorn
MediaGuardian confirmed in a story today that around 40 journalists at Guardian News and Media, publisher of the Guardian, Observer and guardian.co.uk, have taken voluntary redundancy. They include MediaGuardian reporters Stephen Brook (pictured) and Chris Tryhorn and production editor Aly Duncan, as well as the Guardian's San Francisco-based technology reporter Bobbie Johnson.
In November GNM revealed that more than 100 of the publisher's 1,700 editorial and commercial posts were to be cut. The company was estimated to be losing around £100,000 a day.
