LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- More than two dozen long-time employees of the Courier-Journal will be taking early retirement as part of downsizing by the paper's parent company, Gannett.

Eighteen of the 26 employees are from the newsroom.

The Courier-Journal said packages were offered to employees age 56 or older who have been with the company at least 20 years.

The interim publisher said the newspaper is sorry to see the employees leave, but is glad to offer voluntary retirement packages and wishes them the best.

The Courier-Journal has had three rounds of layoffs since 2008.
