Editorial Cuts Coming at WSJ: Report

This story was written by Rafat Ali.
That's according to a report from Jeff Bercovici, reporting on Portfolio.com: the till-now relatively insulated Wall Street Journal newsroom may be in for a round of cuts and may be announced later this week. The number could reach as much as 50, though with buyouts the actual number of layoffs could be much lower. Dow Jones (NYSE: NWS) Newswires, the wire service in the process of being integrated in a better way with other DJ properties, and some Journal bureaus may be closed as well, the story points out. No comment yet from Dow Jones spokesperson yet.

This comes after some changes in online newsroom at Barrons.com mid last month.
