No uptick, the guy says. Are they freakin’ clueless or what?

FCG operates The Tampa Tribune, TBO.com and WFLA News Channel 8. In addition, the company ceased publishing the Flair and Skirt lifestyle publications. Other specialty publications are also under review, and the company is considering closing some news bureaus, Schueler said.
One of the employees now out of a job is WFLA sports anchor Dave Reynolds.
Most of the laid-off employees worked in operations rather than newsrooms, which have seen their own layoffs in the last 12 months.
After the cuts, FCG will employ 1,047 people, and it remains profitable, Schueler said.
