The Gazette newspaper in Colorado Springs laid off 23-employees on Friday, and eliminated another 10 open positions.

Of the 33-positions, 10 came from the News Department.

The job cuts are apparently part of a company wide restructuring plan.

Publisher P. Scott McKibben, who recently took over the paper, told the Associated Press the cuts came from every department. No senior executives or senior management workers were laid off.

The Gazette employes approximately 475 people and is owned by Irvine, California based Freedom Communications. The paper is the company's second largest with a daily circulation of approx. 98,000.
