Reformer, Banner newspapers hit by recession

Employees at the Brattleboro Reformer (where I got my start in daily newspapers) and sister paper the Bennington Banner will take unpaid, week-long furloughs between now and the end of the March, the papers' parent company announced today.

The Reformer and the Banner are owned by MediaNews Group. The furloughs will be enforced at all the company's newspapers across the country.
