Partial list of departing Chron news staffers

Here is an incomplete list of Chronicle staffers who have departed the paper during the current round of layoffs (updated Aug. 1). This list is drawn from public sources as well as e-mails that have been sent to us. E-mail us if you know of other names.Union shop steward Carl Hall is quoted by the SF Weekly as saying that the Chron has close close to reaching its goal of eliminating 80 union positions in the newsroom through buyouts and resignations. In addition, 20 management positions have been cut. The cuts have reduced the newsroom from 400 to 300 staffers.

You can add Louis Freedberg and Rob Collier to the list of fine, experienced journalists who will no longer be in the Chronicle.
