As expected, the San Francisco Examiner's new owners trimmed its newsroom yesterday afternoon, laying off half the copy desk as well as other editorial staff.

We called Todd Vogt, publisher and president of the Ex, who told us layoff notices went out yesterday. However, he would not confirm who lost their jobs or how many positions are being cut. 

However, inside sources at the Ex told us that at least seven editorial positions -- likely more -- were cut, the bulk of them coming from the copy desk.

That's about all we know at this point, but we will update the story as we get more information.
