					STATEMENT OF PATRICK J. PURCELL
President and Publisher
Boston Herald
March 27, 2009



Since 1994 when I purchased the Boston Herald, my goal has been to ensure the
company’s financial stability so that we can provide our online and print readers with
lively, informative and relevant journalism every day. We’ve undertaken myriad
efficiencies, but increasing challenges to the newspaper industry coupled with a bleak
economy have required further belt-tightening measures. It is with regret that I announce
today a 6% reduction in the Herald’s workforce, achieved through 13 voluntary and 11
involuntary terminations.

The spirit of this newspaper emanates from our employees and I thank all of you for your
integrity, ethics and hard work every day.
