Union Reacts to Sun-Times Layoffs
In a major round of cuts at the Chicago Sun-Times, the newspaper lays off its entire photography staff. We get reaction from the union that represents them on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm. Read the full statement released by the Chicago Sun-Times below:
"The Sun-Times business is changing rapidly and our audiences are consistently seeking more video content with their news. We have made great progress in meeting this demand and are focused on bolstering our reporting capabilities with video and other multimedia elements. The Chicago Sun-Times continues to evolve with our digitally savvy customers, and as a result, we have had to restructure the way we manage multimedia, including photography, across the network."
