The Oklahoman cut 57 jobs yesterday, citing struggles to retain sufficient advertising. Staffers across multiple departments who saw their jobs eliminated were offered severance packages.
Publisher David Thompson was quick to point some less harrowing and soul-crushing changes going on at The Oklahoman, like the fact that the paper’s online home, NewsOK.com, have been growing steadily as has the number of home delivery subscribers.
Thompson added that the company was planning on introducing content across platforms like the iPad sooner rather than later. And that takes care of your daily allowance of magnificently terrible Oklahoma jokes.
