DETROIT NEWSPAPER AGENCY ANNOUNCES RESTRUCTURING OF SEVERAL DEPARTMENTS
 DETROIT, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Frank Vega, president and CEO of the Detroit Newspaper Agency, has announced the restructuring of several departments. As part of the restructuring plan, Vega announced that 39 salaried employees had accepted an early retirement offer, three salaried and seven hourly positions have been eliminated, and that several new positions had been created.
 "These changes put us in the position of utilizing our people resources to their greatest potential," Vega said. "Our customers, advertisers and newspapers will benefit from an organization that will be effective and responsive to their needs."
 "Due to the large number of staff taking advantage of the early retirement offer, the need for further reductions was held to a minimum. We're getting people in places where we need them to be most effective. We're 'right-sizing,'" Vega said.
 The most extensive changes come in the marketing and circulation departments. Marketing will see the addition of several new positions. Circulation will consolidate some operations in transportation, phone rooms and the garage.
 The early retirement offer to DNA non-bargaining unit employees expired Friday, Nov. 15, for employees who were at least 55 years old and vested in the retirement program.
 The Detroit Newspaper Agency is the agent for production, circulation, advertising and business functions of the Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News.
