Houston Chronicle Downsizes Newsroom

The Houston Chronicle is downsizing its newsroom, and Romenesko has the letter to staff.

“We will go forward with fewer journalists and support staff… Our reporting today is more aggressive, our writing is more engaging and our newspaper is more visually alluring because of them and you… How are we going to do all these things with less staff? It is a logical question in light of the sheer volume of material we publish each day in print and online.”

That question seems to go unanswered in the letter, aside from this note:

“This is the most interesting time I can remember in 30 years of working as a journalist.”
