Chron Lays Off Oakland City Hall Reporter

The San Francisco Chronicle laid off more journalists today as part of the paper's ongoing cost-cutting moves. Among those who got the ax was Christopher Heredia, the paper's Oakland City Hall beat reporter, according to two knowledgeable sources. With Heredia gone, the newspaper now has no regular reporter covering Oakland, the second largest city in the Chron's circulation area. It'll be interesting to see whether the paper moves someone else into Heredia's spot, or requires Berkeley City Hall reporter Carolyn Jones to do both jobs. The list of other journalists who were laid off today include:

Jim Doyle - higher education reporter

Jane Kay - environmental reporter

Susan Sward - investigative reporter

Tyche Hendricks - reporter

John Koopman - reporter

Delfin Vigil - reporter

Jonathan Curiel - reporter who did Chronicle Watch

For more, see SFist's post from earlier today - it's pretty comprehensive.
