News to close or merge four weekly Sun papers, three Guild members laid off

The Guild has been informed that The Buffalo News will shut down two weekly Sun papers, and merge two others, resulting in the layoff of two part-time Guild reporters and one full-time Guild page designer.
One Sun editor will also be laid off. Two other Guild Sun reporters also recently resigned.

Both the Twin Cities Sun and Lancaster-Depew Sun papers will fold on Jan. 22. In addition, the West Seneca Sun and Orchard Park Sun papers will be combined into a single weekly paper. 

The Hamburg Sun will continue unchanged.
