OttSun update -3

The Ottawa Sun's job losses from Black Tuesday stand at three, but Andre Forget's photo job was saved by a buyout, says a source.

Photographer A.D. Wilson took a buyout to keep Andre on the job, the source says.

Rachel Rowe, central desk, and Scott Taylor, a general assignment reporter, were the two other Ottawa staffers cut.

Andre landed his Ottawa Sun job after his previous employer, the Halifax Daily News, folded last February.

Meanwhile, now that Ottawa has its own presses running again, the tabloid has a new 11:40 p.m. deadline, up from 10 p.m.

That will be good news for sports fans who want scores and reports from evening events in their morning newspaper.
