Voice of San Diego Cuts Reporters

The non-profit news organization first launched in San Diego in 2004

Local news outlet voiceofsandiego.org cut four employees Friday citing lower-than-expected revenue in 2012.

The site's CEO Scott Lewis and Editor Andrew Donohue issued a statement on what they described as a “difficult day” confirming the elimination of four positions and naming three employees who will no longer contribute to the website.

They include education reporter Emily Alpert, neighborhood reporter Adrian Florido and photo editor Sam Hodgson.

"There won't be any further reductions for 2012. Still have an incredible staff and big plans," Donohue posted via Twitter. 

The non-profit news organization is a partner with NBC 7 San Diego on several weekly series including “San Diego Explained”, “San Diego Fact Check” and “Behind the Scene.”
