FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The News-Sentinel made significant staffing changes Friday, laying off most of its employees.

The News-Sentinel general manger Pete Van Baalen told FOX 55 the changes were made because of budget cuts facing many media outlets.

Last year, The News-Sentinel stopped publishing the afternoon newspaper and went digital with an editorial page in the Journal Gazette.

Van Baalen said those will continue.
