Cox Media Group is planning around 87 layoffs at its campuses in the Atlanta area, according to Reporter Newspapers, which publishes monthly papers in the area.

Cox owns the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, among other properties.

The job cuts are reportedly at the management level, according to Reporter Newspapers.

The Atlanta Business Chronicle reported that Cox filed a notice in late August about the planned cuts with the Georgia Department of Labor. The filing reads that Cox is “transitioning its facilities” at 223 Perimeter Center Parkway in Dunwoody and 6205 Peachtree-Dunwoody Road in Sandy Springs.

The location of the AJC newsroom in the long run is still not known. The newsroom relocated to Dunwoody from downtown Atlanta nearly a decade ago. There was a plan to move the newsroom back to Atlanta, but that has been scrapped, according to Reporter Newspapers.
