DescriptionFew states have been hit so hard by the newspaper downturn as Florida. In 2009 The South Florida Sun-Sentinel cut 20 percent of its staff. The same year McClatchy’s Miami Herald cut nearly 200 jobs and stopped distributing its international edition in South America and the Caribbean. Then in 2011 the paper killed another fifteen jobs and announced it would not fill thirty-five open positions. Two hundred St. Petersburg Times employees took early retirement in 2008 and as for The Orlando Sentinel a blog devoted to that paper’s troubles began in 2008 called The Amazing Shrinking Orlando Sentinel.
