Las Vegas Weekly Parent Company Consolidates Operations

december 2, 2009  09:05 am
The Greenspun Media Group, which publishes the Weekly along with the daily Las Vegas Sun and a host of other properties, laid off a number of employees yesterday as part of a major restructuring to streamline operations. Staff at all of the company's publications will now be housed in one building and coalesce in three teams: editorial, advertising and support. Greenspun has not released the number of layoffs involved, but the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the number is "at least 20" and includes two Weekly staffers. On his blog, Weekly columnist Steve Friess says those two are Bethany Acree and Josh Bell.
