Eight jobs to go in Herald restructure

Jobs will be lost as APN News and Media restructures its New Zealand Herald titles.

Staff were told on Wednesday about the changes, which will involve cutting eight senior roles.

Editor-in-chief Tim Murphy says editors will be appointed to deal with content areas like business, news and sport across all the Herald's publications - the New Zealand Herald, Weekend Herald, Herald on Sunday, Herald Online and APNZ News Service.

Mr Murphy told NZ Newswire the economic situation has played a part in the changes.

"The company's made it clear that it wants to get more efficiencies out of all the businesses," he said.

However, the more streamlined roles will ensure the growth of digital news and greater integration and co-ordination between online and print, Mr Murphy said.

Staff will be consulted about the changes over the next week.

APN announced earlier this month that it would sell its South Island newspapers, along with its Wellington-based community papers.
