Voice Of San Diego Announces Layoffs

Voiceofsandiego.org announced this morning that the nonprofit news organization is laying off four employees.

The news follows closely to other big changes in the news media in San Diego: the sale of The San Diego Union-Tribune to developer Doug Manchester.

Three of the layoffs are news staffers: Emily Alpert, education reporter, Adrian Florido, neighborhood reporter, and Sam Hodgson, photo editor.

On Twitter, voiceofsandiego.org's Editor Andrew Donohue referred to the reporters as family, calling them "incredible journalists" and saying "If there's a harder day, I don't want to live it."

The organization is not planning any additional staff reductions, according to Donohue.

My heart goes out to those without jobs/careers. You will be in my prayers. Like many, we are waiting for our government to step up to the plate, quit party bickering, work together and lift us from this recession so that we can get our dignity back.
