Freesheet closures: axe falls on Johnston Press and Trinity Mirror titles

August 12th, 2008Posted by in Jobs, Newspapers

Johnston Press is to close two of its free titles in Scotland, as part of further cost-cutting by the publisher.

According to MediaGuardian, Glasgow East News and Ayrshire Extra will cease publication resulting in the loss of 15 jobs.

The move follows the publisher’s recent decision to restructure Scotsman Publications, resulting in the loss of up to 30 posts.

The National Union of Journalists is set for talks with Johnston tomorrow.

Following suit, Trinity Mirror is to close free weekly paper the Bridgend Post citing ‘difficult market conditions’, HoldtheFrontPage reports.

No advertising or editorial jobs will be lost, as the paper is produced from Trinity’s Cardiff office.
