North County Times lays off one-third of staff


ESCONDIDO, Calif. (AP) — The North County Times reports that it is laying off one-third of its staff, including 24 in the newsroom.

The San Diego-area newspaper reports that employees were notified Monday upon completion of the sale to the region's dominant newspaper, U-T San Diego. Hotelier Doug Manchester bought the North County Times for $12 million from Lee Enterprises Inc., less than a year after buying U-T San Diego.

The North County Times said at the time the sale was announced last month that it had 170 employees, including about 75 in the newsroom.
