The San Francisco Examiner sent out layoff notices Thursday. The new publisher would not confirm how many, saying it was an internal matter.

According to Canada's Black Press Group, the layoffs are part of a previously announced reduction.

The Examiner has undergone three changes of ownership since the Hearst Corporation sold it 11 years ago.
