Wed, 21 Feb 2018 12:32:02 +1300

Stuff is planning to sell or close some of its smaller community and rural papers in a move that could affect 60 jobs.

Chief executive Sinead Boucher said on Wednesday that 28 mastheads would be affected, while reiterating Stuff's plans to grow its digital business.

The company was still working through plans for each of the titles and consultation with staff would occur over coming weeks, she said.

Greg Hywood, chief executive of Australian parent company Fairfax Media, warned last year that its New Zealand business would go into "consolidation mode" if its proposed merger with rival publisher NZME did not get regulatory approval.
