As of last week, about 30 people were out at Hearst Connecticut newsrooms due to layoffs and buyouts.

30 sec call

“The phone call may have been 30 seconds,” said one staffer who was laid off.


Hearst Connecticut is made up of 20 weeklies, 29 websites and eight daily newsrooms including the New Haven Register, the Connecticut Post and The Middletown Press.

“As we continue to invest in and produce the highest-quality content on all platforms, we are making decisions—including difficult ones—to position our businesses for future growth,” a Hearst Newspapers spokesman told Poynter via email. “We are proud to have become the largest local news operation in Connecticut—with more than 200 journalists.”
