Some new roles are also set to be created as a result of the changes, which affect the Cambridge News and a series of weekly sister titles in Herts and Essex.
The proposed changes come 24 hours after the Liverpool Echo’s David Bartlett, left, was announced as the new editor of the News, following Paul Brackley’s departure earlier this year, although he does not take up the role until 1 August.
Trinity Mirror has confirmed that its print and online portfolio in the region will be unchanged, with no websites closing or merging.
Restructures in some other parts of the former LW stable such as Cornwall, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Kent and Essex have seen smaller newspaper companion sites merged into county-wide platforms.
A Trinity Mirror spokesperson said: “We have today announced changes to editorial structures in Cambridge and Herts & Essex Newspapers (HEN).
“In line with the strategy and approach across Trinity Mirror, the proposed changes focus on ensuring we have the right editorial structure to best deliver quality digital and print content to local audiences on the topics they are interested in, when they want it, how they want it.
“As part of the changes, a number of new roles will be created, but we also anticipate some redundancies. Seven roles are at risk in Cambridge and five in HEN. Staff affected have entered a period of consultation.
“Trinity Mirror’s portfolio in Cambridge and HEN will be unaffected and the business remains committed to providing the best local journalism across our print, digital and social channels.”
