A blog called “Tell Zell” has released a list of Hartford Courant employees who have applied for the buyout being offered in an effort to cut staff. The list seems to combine the employees who recently accepted the buyout and those who left during the first round of buyouts in March.
A list CTNewsjunkie received from an unnamed source lists about 33 editors, reporters, photographers, and librarians. The Tell Zell blog lists 68 staffers, including reporters like Lynn Tuohy, who left the paper in March.
The Courant announced last month that it would be reducing its news staff by 25 percent before the end of July.
