Meanwhile, job losses are also on the horizon at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The newspaper is cutting 189 jobs, including 58 currently filled newsroom positions, which will bring the newsroom to 350 full-timers. According to an internal memo, the newsroom is moving from four major departments to three, and all departments will see reductions except for digital. The paper is offering a voluntary separation program to employees with five or more years of pension vesting. In the event that the AJC does not receive enough voluntary requests, it will enact an involuntary program, based on past performance and skills. All job changes are slated to be completed by the end of August. A spokeswoman confirmed that the paper's weekly shopping title, the Buyer's Edge, is moving from a stand-alone in Saturday's edition to run in the newly expanded Living section in Sunday's paper. This is being done based on reader feedback and advertising support; it's unclear at this point whether the move will impact any jobs.
