The proposed cutbacks will see three editors and a sub-editor made redundant, as well as two photographers.
In their place, those affected are being invited to apply for two new roles, group editor and content editor.
A freelance sub-editor is also set to leave under the proposals, which were announced to staff last week.
However, it is understood both Roisin McGroarty, who currently edits the Herald and the Times, and David Carnduff, who oversees, the Largs & Millport Weekly News, had decided to leave the company before the current plans were announced.
This would leave Caroline Paterson, currently managing editor of both the Advertiser and the Chronicle, in charge of all five titles if she were to successfully apply for the group editor role.
The job losses are the latest in a series of cutbacks to have taken place at the former Romanes titles.
