McClatchy is laying off the equivalent of 1,600 workers, and others are having salaries cut as part of a restructuring.
The four McClatchy newspapers in Washington state are The Olympian, The News-Tribune, The Bellingham Herald and Tri-City Herald.
Some well-known papers owned by the firm around the country include The Kansas City Star, The Sacramento Bee and The Miama Herald.
McClatchy has some very fine reporters here, around the country, and in its DC bureau. This is a shame.
