Westchester County newspaper shrivels further

The Journal News, a Gannett paper that covers Westchester County and environs, is in the midst of shedding a depressingly large chunk of its newsroom staff.

This week both of its football writers, long-time Giants beat reporter Ernie Palladino and Jane McManus, who had covered the Jets, chose to leave in advance of layoff announcements. So did the sports section's assignment editor.

Here is a complete list of pro sports teams the paper now plans to cover both home and away: the Yankees.

Sigh.
