10 more jobs could go in new MEN content plan
Another 10 jobs could go at the Manchester Evening News and its 21 sister weekly titles, now owned by Trinity Mirror, in plans to combine journalists into one editorial team, HoldtheFrontPage reports today.
It says: "Up to 10 jobs could go in the restructuring plan which will see teams of reporters covering specific geographical areas, creating content for all MEN Media's titles and platforms. "However a number of new roles will also be created as part of the restructure, two of which will focus on the creation of high-quality, user-generated content. As well as a combined newsdesk operation, production will be handled by a single team, although there will be dedicated 'product champion' roles with a brief to ensure that quality and local knowledge are retained."
