Job cuts at Metro UK online

Daily Mail & General Trust (Associated Newspapers) will cut jobs at their morning free daily Metro.

According to MediaGuardian “the staff working in the newspaper’s regional offices compiling the Metro Life listings and reviews section could be affected”, meaning it will affect online operations in the first place.

Steve Auckland, the Metro managing director, said the impact of the economic downturn was likely to hit the freesheet’s advertising revenues into next year: “Like most media organisations we have been busy streamlining the business to deal with a tougher market.”
