Newsday Looking to Add to Staff

No, it’s not a misprint.

Editor & Publisher and Crain’s New York Business are reporting that Newsday is looking hire 34 reporters, including three to fill newly created positions. The new hires will be brought on board over the next six months, according to Crain’s, which broke the story on Wednesday.

Of course, while any new hiring in the news business is encouraging, it comes at a cost. Contract negotiations that ended in June resulted in Newsday union members agreeing to wage cuts of between 5-and-10 percent.
