US Newspaper Editorial Employment Reaches A 37-Year Low

In an unsurprising, but undeniably sad, reflection on the state of the US newspaper industry, a major survey shows that newsroom jobs have fallen to their lowest level since 1978, the year of the first such survey.
The latest annual decline to the 37-year low totalled 10.4%, according to the research by the American Society of News Editors (ASNE). It shows that newsroom employment dropped to 32,900 in 2014 compared to 36,700 the year before.
