On Monday, McClatchy announced a change to its page design and typesetting via an email that Poynter obtained. At least 26 people will lose their jobs. McClatchy's Kerry Bean wrote in the email that the work will go to Express KCS, which will handle design and typesetting for 21 McClatchy papers beginning in early May, with the remaining large markets served by the Publishing Center scheduled to follow this summer. Publishing Center staff and our local newsrooms will maintain control of McClatchy's work, including deciding story play and pre-finishing content to ensure that online headlines, cutlines and other display type sent over by newsrooms are in a format acceptable for print. Sixteen people will their jobs on May 16, with another 10 on June 13. The final staffers leave Aug. 15.
