BANG newsroom cuts: 10 quit, 24 laid off

Of the 34 newsroom positions cut by BANG this week, 10 were by voluntary resignations and the rest were firings, according to a report by Walnut Creek Patch.
Patch said those who left BANG include:

If you know of other names, email the Press Club at sfpen-pressclub@sbcglobal.net.

One point overlooked in the news about the cuts is that BANG will halt home delivery on Mondays of the Oakland Tribune, The (Fremont) Argus and The (Hayward) Daily Review, starting sometime in November. The Monday papers will still be available at retail outlets, news racks and other locations, and there will also be electronic versions.

UPDATE: Nov. 8: SFBayAreaObserver.com, edited by Ron Russell, has identified additional layoff victims. We added their titles. Let us know if any of these titles are incorrect.

Patch has one more name to add to the list — Chris Metinko, who covered Alameda County for BANG.
