The newspaper reported Monday, Oct. 26, 2020, the change won't result in cuts to the newsroom staff, but nearly 160 people involved with printing and delivering the daily paper will be laid off.

The Salt Lake Tribune encourages readers to submit their own commentaries for publication in the opinion section.

Commentaries should be offered exclusively to The Tribune, address timely topics of general interest and should not exceed 700 words. Priority is given to Utah-related topics and Utah authors. Authors should include a recent photograph and a sentence or two of biographical information that includes any experience or expertise in the subject matter addressed. Our policy is to accept only one commentary per person in any 30-day period.

They may be sent to George Pyle, opinion editor, at gpyle@sltrib.com. Sending text in the body of an email is preferred, as attachments do not always arrive in a usable form.
