CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The entire staff of the entertainment publication CinWeekly has been laid off.

Gannett, the parent company of The Enquirer and CinWeekly, announced a few days ago that they would be making cuts.

Sources say Metro Mix, which is an arts and entertainment publication by the Tribune Company will take the spot of CinWeekly.

Former workers gathered Wednesday in Hyde Park and talked about getting the bad news.

"It was quiet, a little morbid, as people kept to themselves, as everybody packed up their belongings for the first round," said Marianne Cafaro, a former staff member.
