Independent News and Media has announced that it is merging editorial functions of the Sunday World and the Herald newspapers with voluntary redundancies to be announced.
The company said it is creating what it calls a 'Digital First' content centre to which reporters will file to optimise its news offering.
It said the editorial reorganisation is being undertaken to "future-proof" both titles.
The initiative is part of the overall ongoing group re-organisation of INM.
"This is a fundamental restructuring of the production and reporting process by taking advantage of new systems, improvements and work-flows that have already been successfully introduced across the Irish Independent, Sunday Independent and The Herald," said Stephen Rae, Editor-In-Chief.
"This approach, based on an audience-first strategy, will also ensure the continued uniqueness and identity of The Sunday World and The Herald."
