The Dallas Morning News laid off 43 employees Jan. 7. Around 20 of the 43 came from the newsroom, the paper said.

The cuts involve around 4 percent of the 978 staff members for parent company A. H. Belo Corporation.  

The layoffs are “intended to position The News for long-term success," said Publisher Grant Moise, the paper said.

“After considerable thought and analysis, our management team has determined that our business in the future is largely supported by subscription revenue and the need for more aggressive investment in our digital products,” Moise said.
