From a pool of about 900 eligible employees, tipsters whisper in a couple of e-mails. Attached -- thank you, very much! -- were copies of Cincinnati Enquirer Publisher Margaret Buchanan's memo to employees today. Buchanan's memo doesn't seem to put any limits on who's eligible. The offer goes to "all active non-represented employees of Enquirer Media, excluding Operating Committee employees," it says.
The terms are identical to what we got at USA Today: "Two weeks of severance for every year of credited service – up to 52 weeks,'' her memo says. "This will be paid out the same way as regular payroll until the severance period is exhausted. During the severance period, health benefits will remain intact." Deadline: Aug. 15.
