MIAMI The Miami Herald is outsourcing copy editing of a weekly community news section and some advertising production work to India, a newspaper editor said Friday.
Starting in January, copy editing and design in a weekly section of Broward County community news and other special advertising sections will be outsourced to Mindworks, based in New Delhi.
The project remains in the testing phase, so it was unclear if or how jobs in South Florida will be affected, Executive Editor Anders Gyllenhaal said.
Mindworks will also monitor reader comments posted to online stories, he said.
Earlier this month, The Sacramento Bee, also owned by the McClatchy Co., said it would outsource some of its advertising production work to India.
In May, news Web site, pasadenanow.com, was widely criticized after editors hired two reporters in India to cover the Los Angeles suburb.
