recession bites at the Telegraph

According to the Press Gazette, the Telegraph Media Group is shedding 50 journalists, about 10 percent of its total, in response to the harsh economic climate.  The cuts are reported to be falling principally in its picture desks, magazine supplements and production.  Companies looking to take their news to TMG therefore might do well to consider ways they can help bridge the gap, for example by offering higher quality photo-led stories that can immediately fill a slot for the harder pressed remaining staff.
