The Trend economic weekly will lose about one-quarter of its editorial staff, including all political reporters. The reason is the drop in advertising incomes due to the coronavirus pandemic resulting in an effort to cut expenses by 25 percent, the Omediach.com website reported.
The weekly’s publisher, News and Media Holding controlled by the Penta financial group, will dismiss eight of its 35 reporters. This includes current deputy editor-in-chief Eva Mihočková, as well as journalists Marián Biel, Peter Kapitán, Tomáš Nejedlý, Martin Poláš, Ján Meľuch, Jarmila Horváthová, and visual department manager Mariana Krupková, Omediach.com wrote.
