SPH cuts oso so abrupt sia

Those affected by the cuts include reporters, photographers and sub-editors from flagship paper The Straits Times (ST). Staff at The Business Times (BT) and Chinese language daily Lianhe Zaobao (ZB) were also cut.

Sources told Yahoo News Singapore that some employees came to work on Thursday afternoon to find their work accounts disabled, only to be informed later that they had to exit the premises by 6pm.

Dozens of employees from ST were told to go, including seven from the Life! section, as well as 15 employees at BT. They ranged from relatively junior employees to veterans who had been with the company for decades.

Addressing SPH employees on Thursday morning at a town hall at the News Centre in Toa Payoh North, which lasted at least two hours, chief executive Ng Yat Chung cited a Chinese proverb in explaining the rationale for bringing forward the timeline.

“We have decided as a leadership team, rather than drag this process over two years, let’s get it done…Chang tong bu ru duan tong (let’s not prolong the pain). Get this unpleasantness behind us and hopefully, we won’t have to touch this topic again for a long time.”



yeah rite so short... till such sudden stint of no notice to the affected

It was planned a year ago when the he became ceo. Newspaper sales has been declining. Not only that, advertising and subscription rate has dropped since we advanced into the digital age. Sph can't change its contents due to propaganda. They are not like those hk/tw papers. Anyhow whack any political parties etc. Tbh, I don't pity sph for dying. I pity those uncle/aunties who sell/deliver newspaper just to earn that income monthly.

For edmw, the most important question is who did they vote for?
