Bob Kittle, the editorial page editor at The San Diego Union-Tribune, has been laid off, according to newsroom sources. So has Bernie Jones, the editor of the newspaper’s opinion page.

Kittle has been one of the newspaper’s most prominent voices and its public face: A conservative and staunch supporter of San Diego business community.

The newspaper is in the midst of laying off staffers throughout the business. We’re working to confirm the size and scope of the layoffs, which comes three months after the newspaper’s new owner, Beverly Hills-based Platinum Equity, laid off 192 employees in May.

We’ll have more information as it becomes available.
