"Even with circulation and business touching close to 90% compared to pre-Covid times, the distress across newsrooms is far from over. BCCL is one such case in point. A fresh round of retrenchments has hit their newsrooms across the country. After closing down editions such as Times Life and Sunday ET Magazine in phases through 2020, TOI and ET saw more pink slips being given out in the last two-three months. As per highly placed sources, almost 100 employees across teams have either been asked to leave or their contracts have not been renewed in the last couple of months."
