January 03, 2007|From Associated Press

The Philadelphia Inquirer, grappling with sharp declines in circulation and ad revenue, said it expected to lay off 68 newsroom employees, about 16% of its editorial staff.

Several reporters at the Inquirer, Pennsylvania's largest newspaper, said they were told that their jobs were being eliminated. The employees said they were told to meet with personnel officials today to discuss details of their severance pay and health benefits.

All the affected workers will be notified by today, and their layoff dates and benefits will vary, company spokesman Jay Devine said.
