Another kick in the stomach for local print media.
All the reporters have been let go at 24 Hours newspaper, which is quite popular with people who ride the bus and take SkyTrain.
Some sales and administrative staff have also been let go, eight people in total.
24 Hours will continue to print, but be populated by Vancouver Sun and Province content.
Attempts were made to notify all staff before the news broke publicly, but that wasn’t the case for everyone.
The local office in Vancouver will be closed.
