As we near the end of this most unusual year of pandemics, protests and a historic presidential election, it’s a good time to reflect on what matters most.

For the third consecutive year, the Times-Dispatch won the major competition award in the Virginia Press Association’s annual competition, recognizing overall excellence in news and advertising in the category that includes the state’s largest newspapers by circulation.

A former Times-Dispatch editor, Thomas P. Kapsidelis, was among eight media professionals inducted into the Virginia Communications Hall of Fame Thursday.

An image that circulated in April on Twitter provided a visual representation of how many RTD employees had been lost since 2018.

“I just want to say that today we made some layoff announcements. Three layoffs in the newsroom today,” Chris Coates, the Richmond Times-Dispatch’s managing editor, said during the phone call. “This is through no fault of their own. This was a job elimination decision. This is not limited to Richmond.”

It was Thursday, April 14, and with barely a month in the editor-in-chief chair, Coates had fired three editors earlier that day: news editors John Ramsey and Reed Williams and opinion editor Lisa Vernon Sparks. John Reid Blackwell, the paper’s only remaining business reporter, resigned in protest.

The dismissals were a continuation of a trend. In December last year, Karri Peifer, an editor who had held various positions in the newspaper, was let go. In February, RTD laid off Mark Robinson, one of the newsroom’s star reporters, and two copy editors. Since November last year, more than a third of the editor’s approximately 60 positions have been eliminated through layoffs and downsizing.

And since the layoffs on April 14, the organization has on average lost an extra person or two per week, including both human resources managers.

For both employees and readers of RTD, the turnaround has been striking. In 2020, the Metro team’s reporting on the pandemic, the George Floyd protests and the removal of Confederate monuments was considered a high water mark for journalism at the paper. Columnist Michael Paul Williams’ commentary on the latter topics earned him a Pulitzer. Now it seems that the editorial office is being gutted.

Another editor tried to be supportive, saying that after losing people in the past, the paper had always regrouped and come back stronger.

“It’s just not true,” a reporter said in an audio recording of the meeting provided to Style by several employees. Apart from Coates, Style is keeping the names of journalists on the recording anonymous out of concerns of retaliation against them by top executives at RTD. “This is a terrible decision and whoever was responsible for it should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.”

In the recording, a longtime employee questioned what the layoffs meant for the paper’s future, saying Ramsey was the best editor in the newsroom, the sentiment of many employees.

“Ramsey literally held this newsroom together,” he said. “These are not plug-and-play positions. These were invaluable colleagues. It’s a blow to the editors who remain, as well as the journalists.”

Virginia is a one-party consent recording state, so only one person in a conversation must consent to being recorded. Style was able to verify the recording. (About a dozen current and former RTD employees were interviewed for this story. For brevity, “employees” refers to both current and former employees in this story. Each assertion of fact has been verified by at least three people).

Over the past two decades, as the business of American newspapers has consolidated and ceded to the digital age, a refrain from management has become commonplace in newsrooms: “Do more with less.” Like most dailies, RTD has been slowly shedding staff for years, with reporters scrambling to cover more beats and editors taking on extra duties, including extra weekend and night shifts, to make up for lost positions.

“We’ve gotten to a point where it’s just unsustainable,” says one employee, speaking to Style anonymously because RTD employees are not authorized to speak to the press. Former employees have also been granted anonymity for this story out of concern that speaking publicly could damage their careers. “This place, just when you think it can’t get any worse, it does.”

The timing of these recent layoffs coincides with Alden Global Capital’s unsolicited bid to buy Lee Enterprises, RTD’s parent company since it bought the paper and dozens of others from BH Media in early 2020. Alden*, a New York City-based hedge fund with a reputation for buying newspapers and churning them out for a profit, made an offer to buy Lee last November at $24 a share. That offer was rejected, but ever since, Lee has made moves that seem straight out of the Alden playbook: namely, eliminating newsroom positions and raising subscription prices.

In April, Axios reported that Lee will eliminate more than 400 positions this year across at least 19 local newspapers it owns and corporate roles.
