Update: Star-Telegram Has Already Laid Off 17 Newsroom Staffers

An addendum to the downsizing at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram: According to several sources, 17 staffers in the newsroom were let go this morning, among them managing editor Gary Hardee, science writer Carolyn Poirot, arts writer Todd Camp, Lifestyles columnist Mary Rogers, travel editor Judy Wiley and three librarians. Writers and editors have been told another 33 newsroom positions need to be eliminated, and letters were given to 200 of the 300 remaining staffers in which buyouts were offered. If McClatchy can't find enough takers, there will be additional layoffs based on seniority. --Robert Wilonsky
