Two production staff lost their jobs recently as Metroland moves to consolidate newsroom production at its Oshawa offices. Sales staff and reporters will remain in Brighton.
This is part of a trend to regionalize production facilities within Metroland and other publications for smaller communities. Peterborough Examiner production staff were laid off recently as Sun Media consolidates its operation. The Barrie Examiner will be handling the production for the region.
The consolidation trend continues as Northumberland Publishers, also owned by Sun Media, recently merged
the Cobourg Star, Port Hope Evening Guide and the Colborne Chronicle
into a single publication called Northumberland Today.
