N.Y. based Newsday hiring 34 reporters!

The New York-based Newsday has announced that it has openings for 34 reporters over the coming six months. The move was revealed to staff yesterday by the paper's editor-in-chief, Debby Krenek, in a memo that began with an exclamation: "Newsday's newsroom is hiring!" Krenek's surprise was evident as she continued: "I'm very excited to announce that we are making this significant investment in people and pages to provide more and stronger coverage for Long Islanders." The decision to expand pagination - an extra 2,600 pages of news and opinion are promised annually - comes against a background of bitter contract negotiations that ended in June with staff agreeing to 5%-10% wage cuts. Newsday was acquired in 2008 for $650m (£415m) by Cablevision Systems Corp.
