New Mexico’s biggest daily newspaper is scaling back.

The Albuquerque Journal recently eliminated six positions, including one in the newsroom, according to Brian Fantl, the newspaper’s senior vice president and chief operating officer.

On top of this, five more reporters recently left the newsroom, and it’s unclear whether their positions will be refilled.

Others “may come back on consultant agreements,” Fantl said.
