PROVO — The Daily Herald of Provo laid off its executive editor a week after letting nine other employees go.
Executive Editor Randy Wright said he was laid off Wednesday for cost-cutting reasons.
Wright was executive editor for 11 years. He has worked for nine other newspapers, joining the Daily Herald in his hometown of Provo after a stint as assistant managing editor at the Arizona Daily Star of Tucson.
Davenport, Iowa-based Lee Enterprises, which owns the Daily Herald, says the paper has a daily circulation of 24,000. Messages left for corporate officials weren't returned Friday.
The Daily Herald laid off nine employees in news, finance and advertising departments on Feb. 6. It ran a story about those layoffs, but hasn't reported on Wright's layoff.
The newspaper's president and publisher, Rona Rahlf, didn't return a call Friday.
