Two Top U-T Officials Get the Axe
A management person has confirmed rumors going around the Union-Tribune today (May 29). Robert (Bobbie) Espinosa, head of human resources, has been separated from the company. Also out, according to good information, is Scott Whitley, chief revenue officer, or the head of advertising. Many employees believed that Espinosa dealt squarely with them. Whitley has been on the job ten years. Up to now, almost all layoffs have been of Indians, not chiefs. These two moves break the pattern, probably because of the new ownership.
