Tribune Media Services, a division of the Tribune Company (owner of the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and 8 others) laid off around 25 of its roughly 400 employees earlier this week. Apparently this is in addition to 20 employees laid off in January:
Tribune Media Services laid off about 25 people Tuesday at its offices on Media Drive, citing a need to improve efficiency.
“Obviously, it’s a little bit of a rough day for us,” said company spokesman Graham McKenna. “We’re looking for efficiencies in the business and looking to modernize the business, so it’s really going to put us in a better position to be more of a global leader for TV and EPG (electronic program guide data).”
McKenna would not comment on severance packages or relocation opportunities for the affected employees.
