Winston Salem Journal Loses Top Editor To Cuts

Layoffs at many newspapers including the Charlotte Observer have primarily claimed staff positions, but the Winston Salem Journal has cut the paper's top editor. The Journal's executive editor Carl Crothers has decided to voluntarily step down to save the paper money. The managing editor will take over his duties. The Journal has had several rounds of cuts over the past two years, but Publisher Jeff Green declined to say how many.
