Furloughs were supposedly announced today at all CNHI newspapers, according to a post on the Sports Journalist message board.
Those posting on the site said all CNHI employees have to take the furloughs, except for those involved in retail advertising sales. CNHI, of course, owns the Joplin Globe.
The Globe, meanwhile, continued its blanket coverage of the economic crisis, including the problems facing newspapers, as long, of course, as the newspaper in question is not the Joplin Globe.
The Globe placed an article on its website today revealing that the Girard Press, owned by Gatehouse Media, will publish its final edition March 25.
Hopefully, those posting on the message board were wrong about the furloughs being companywide.
