In yet another indication of the trends addressed in the cover story of this week's Current, the San Antonio Express-News has cut more jobs, largely in its sales department.

The newspaper announced the downsizing in a short story on its website, in which Publisher Susan Lynch Pape said she's evaluating "how we align our resources with the current economic conditions." The move comes after the paper trimmed 14 jobs in its newsroom in May.



Like metro dailies nationwide, the E-N is scaling back as advertising shifts online and subscriptions dwindle. Around 32,000 people have lost their jobs at newspapers since 2004, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
