Herald layoffs: editorial side safe

Earlier today, the Boston Globe reported that the Boston Herald will be laying off up to 160 people and outsourcing its printing.  But it wasn't clear--at least to me--whether those layoffs would be hit the editorial side or not.

According to Herald editor Kevin Convey, it's the latter. "The answer is, no editorial layoffs--none now and none contemplated," he tells the Phoenix.

Meanwhile, the Boston Business Journal is reporting that the Globe may "consolidat[e]" its own printing operations. “We’re taking a look at consolidation opportunities and we haven’t made any final decisions yet,” spokesman Al Larkin tells the BBJ. No word in that article on how many job cuts this consolidation might entail; there is, however, some additional info on the Herald's plans (as well as a clarification about the editorial layoffs, or lack thereof).
